English Literacy Classes for Self-Supported Futures

On a weekly basis, Uhuru Walk’s Volunteering Teachers (VT’s) research, plan and carry out hands-on English lessons for children aged 3-10 to create their independent, self-supported futures in a globalized world. Classes are constructed under guidance from child expert + curriculum designer – Gulbanu Suleman, and team leader + mentor – Sarah Suleman. In our ever-increasingly globalizing world, children who are unable to comprehend and communicate in English are likely to have fewer opportunities in their adult lives, rendering it even more challenging to break the cycle of poverty within which they have been situated. Each special, disadvantaged child supported by Uhuru Walk holds hopes and dreams for their future to come, yet our estimates demonstrate that only 1 in 25 of these children have the tools necessary to succeed in predominantly English speaking contexts. Volunteering Teachers are certified for their commitment, dedication, and contributions.
