An English-speaking environment is created in the classroom to help the students learn the language easily.

Each volunteer commits to one academic year's classroom teaching. Over the academic year, volunteers strive to make a difference in the lives of each child. The Literacy Program is a three-year intervention (Class III – Class V) which are also the child's formative years.
