This past summer, REAP started a Leveled Literacy Intervention(LLI) program at the Duha school designed to give early readers a foundation for their academic and social emotional success. The Fountas & Pinnell LLI program is a powerful intervention that provides daily, intensive, small-group instruction, which supplements classroom literacy teaching with engaging leveled books. This program integrates the essential skills of decoding, comprehension and writing. In addition to literacy, our programing ensures that all participating students receive lunch, as well practice English language speaking and listening through our multi media programming. All parents are visited by a REAP staff member on a monthly basis to affirm that each child is fully known and to enlist each parent in the simultaneous development of their literacy along with their child.

Students of Green Hills Academy and Duha School Join Hands to Serve the Musha Community
December 11, 2017
Recently, 60 students and 5 teachers from Green Hills traveled to Musha, Rwamagana for a Community service day at the construction site of the REAP Community Library and Learning Center. Fifteen students from Duha and REAP in-country staff joined them and helped at the construction site. The activities included passing bricks to masons, forming a laterite base for the floors and site clearance. At the end of the activities, students had a talk with teachers and the REAP project manager about community service, project management and civil engineering.
When the Community Library and Learning Center is complete, regular community service programming will be put in place to better involve the community for increased impact.
