The Learn by Play Program

The program aims at limiting illiteracy and decreasing the drop-out rate from schools by operating on three levels: parents, school teachers and young volunteers with the child as the center of the activity, working in small groups of elementary pupils mainly the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade to build up the basic acquired skills in reading, writing, and arithmetic through work papers and didactical activities. Under the program, young volunteers are trained to be mentors of children with learning difficulties.
