We all know the importance of reading in a student’s success. Research shows that children who don't learn to read by the end of third grade are likely to remain poor readers for the rest of their lives, and they're likely to fall behind in other academic areas, too. People who struggle with reading are more likely to drop out of high school and live in poverty.
Learning to read even became harder when the pandemic hit in 2020. Students were forced to stay home and learn using different forms of blended learning. BINHI created its ClassHome Kit in response to the new normal. It is the same English learning Kits that were transformed into video lessons with matching activity sheets to be used by the students in their homes.
The ClassHome Kit contains school supplies, activity sheets, and video lessons that the child can do every day for 24 weeks. Our trained teachers also conduct weekly online review sessions to monitor the progress of Experts have discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they're four years old they're usually among the best readers by the time they're eight.
Unfortunately only half of our BINHI Scholars are able to attend weekly review classes due to lack of gadgets.
We would be needing your help so we can give our students a chance to learn how to read by donating. The amount to be collected would also be used to buy gadgets for the students. If you wish to donate your own unused gadget instead of cash, contact us so we can send you our details.
*Unused gadgets can be any old or extra but working smartphones, tablets, laptops, computers, chargers, etc.
