For The Love of Literacy

About This Campaign

Hi! Thanks for visiting my campaign page! I believe that every child should have the right to fall in love with reading. I believe that every child has the right to literacy support. That is why I am fundraising for the Excellence in Literacy Foundation’s Month’s of Hope Campaign. Your donation will support 4 months of literacy classes to teach literacy and life skills to youth. The Excellence in Literacy Foundation helps children with learning challenges and provides them the self-confidence and support necessary to improve their literacy and life skills. To reach my campaign goal, I need at least 70 friends to donate $10 each! Imagine, for as little as $10, you can help empower youth to fall in love with literacy and receive the necessary support to excel in life. I know that together we can make this happen! So, for the love of literacy, Do You Giveffect? Sincerely, Suraiya. Ps: If you have any questions or comments please feel free to write on my activity wall and I will be sure to get in touch with you!

Campaign to Support The Excellence in Literacy Foundation

The ELF provides community partners across Canada with free, user-friendly and effective literacy teaching tools for children and youth living in low-income, new Canadian, Indigenous, homeless and special needs communities. In the the last ten years, we have written, developed and produced literacy teaching workbooks with engaging content relevant to the lives and circumstances of the children we serve, created training sessions to explain the ELF teaching method to teachers and volunteers of community partner agencies, and designed literacy assessment, evaluation and teaching tools for partners to measure student progress. Our unique workbooks focus on Canadian-relevant themes about Indigenous, multi-cultural issues, Canada’s parliamentary system and civic responsibilities. They encourage respect and inclusiveness, recognize the four simple steps toward attaining good literacy skills and are easy-to-use for community volunteers from various educational backgrounds. The workbooks teach: • verbal, phonetic, comprehension and writing skills, • confidence, leadership and vocational skills, and • fundamental financial skills. Since 2002—through ELF supported programs—over 35000 children nationally have received literacy tutoring and mentoring via 250 community partners. This support will help these children succeed at school, develop confidence and become productive, conscientious citizens. In the last year, the ELF received over 150 additional partner requests for literacy support. Your support could help to fulfill many of these requests!
