Reading Programs



Save the Children currently implementing Better Literacy for Academic Result (BELAJAR) Project aims to improve literacy outcomes among grade 1-3 primary school students (years 1-3) in Belu, NTT in Indonesia. The BELAJAR project will work with educators and communities to improve literacy outcomes for early year primary students in Belu, NTT. Save the Children will use its proven and innovative Literacy Boost methodology in 40 public and private primary schools and benefit an estimated 12,000 students. Students will learn to read independently, using activities to promote reading inside and outside the classroom, which will lead to improved life-long learning.
