Literacy Support

In addition to delivering food to the children in school, GPM volunteers bring an enriching literacy component to the children’s learning experience. GPM volunteers prepare and deliver fun and informal educational lessons in English, geography, science, math and history. Volunteers support the local teachers and collaborate with them in order to ensure that GPM programs are organically integrated into the classroom experience. Volunteers help stimulate and motivate the children’s learning, assist with their social adaptation, and give a lot of love and encouragement that boosts their self-esteem and helps them envision a brighter future.
