Child Literacy in English

The years of childhood fly by for many children who live in the slums and villages of India. They work alongside their parents or caretakers but never get an opportunity to attend school for a proper education. This means they are not taught English which only results in greater difficulties in the future.

India has over 300 million children, many of which are in this situation. Education is vital for the employment and social prospects of these children. REAP, in partnership with Bible Society NSW; provide a basic educational program in reading, writing and speaking English. With this education and developed social skills, their outlook for the future is very bright.

REAP Literacy program started in 5 slums in Hyderabad in February 2007 but gradually new centres were added. The demand for a proper education for these children has increase.

Year Centres Children  
2005 1 25  
2006 5 60  
2007 33 1369  
2008 65 2704  
2009 81 3619  
2010 121 4700  
2011 241 10000  

With your help, even more children can now look forward to a brighter future. As the knowledge of English helps a child gain advantage while taking up higher studies and also creates better employment opportunities.



REAP's vision is to reach 1 million children through literacy program
