Support an Entire ELF Literacy Program for ONE TERM - $700
Imagine being a seven-year-old child growing up in a family where your parents are trying very hard to make ends meet and are struggling with their own low literacy skills. Who do you turn to for help with your homework or to read a bedtime story? Your support could provide four months of literacy classes to teach literacy and life skills to students aged five to 18.
Your contribution helps ESL students arriving in our classrooms unable to speak a word of English or French, to read and write at a first grade level, and this often happens after one term.
Your support gives students with learning challenges the confidence to improve at twice the rate of children who do not have the help of ELF-supported programs.
Your gift ensures the continuity of a program that makes students positive about learning so they do not drop out of school.
Your commitment to this program guarantees that another Canadian community can offer the hope of literacy support for a four-month term to children who are in need.
