Paola, Lorraine, Pablo, Debora and Indiara talk about the School Tutoring Program

Our first Video post from the project is all about the School Tutoring program which supports the children who are behind with their reading, writing and other school subjects catch up and maintain a required level of education. This is extremely important for the children as many of them are unable to read or write at a late age (e.g. 10+ years old) and these lack of basic skills will set the negative tone for their future unless addressed.

The School Tutoring Program provides a space in an otherwise unstable environment for these children to be able to learn at their own pace and so we asked some of them to tell us about the classes and how they feel about the program. Getting the children involved in producing video clips like these is extremely important as not only is it an exciting activity for the children but one that helps improve their confidence and concentration. Not to mention the fact that there may be some budding future TV presenters amongst the group! Watch the (very entertaining) video clip and see for yourself…
