Literacy and Education

Nascent deploys sustainable education initiatives to transform the lives of children, women and communities.

Supporting and Empowering Girls:

 

Nascent utilizes incentives such as take home food rations to encourage the participation of girls in education. We use social behavior change strategies to promote parental engagement in the education of girls. Enrollment campaigns are channeled via various local print media, national and local TV / Radio messages. Nascent also works with communities, local leaders and ministries of education to promote girls’ participation in education .

Promoting Literacy in Rural Schools and Communities:

 

Nascent’s literacy programs work with families, communities and schools to ensure that children have convenient access to reading materials that help them master requisite reading skills before the end of third grade.

Training and Supporting Teachers:

 

Teachers who have the skills to support literacy learning in children are vital to improving students’ learning outcomes. We support primary school teachers with professional development opportunities to enhance instructional skills.

SUSTAINABLE IMPACT

We transform communities in crisis by creating a reading culture through Mobile Reading and Book Clubs.
