Yemen Early Grade Reading Approach

Creative’s Yemen Early Grade Reading Approach—part of an integrated, community-based program designed to enhance education—introduces a new, phonics-based reading program to schools across the country. The program was implemented in 310 schools during the 2011–2012 academic year. The new approach worked so well that the government expanded it to more than 1,200 schools in the 2013-2014 academic year. It’s now being used nationally and has become part of the official first grade curriculum. To expand its reach, Creative and the Ministry of Education launched a national reading campaign designed to promote a culture of reading.
