109 students love their new learning center!

The JaJa Village book project has brought a place for the 109 children to learn, read and grow their knowledge. The students now have a learning center in the village where they can stay together to study after school or during weekends or vacations. Some of the kids even take reading books to school to read. The students love to borrow books from the library. It has encouraged them to spend more time reading books. The kids are excited to read story books with pictures and this is encouraging the students desire to write as well as draw. The students are learning so many new skills and are now motivated to learn and are excited to go to school.

JaJa Village (1)Ms Tangmojyid is a mother of 4 children, 3 of which attend the JaJa village primary school. “We have never bought the kids books except some writing papers or pencils because what we earn is not even enough for family daily living. We both are illiterate and we do not know what to buy even if we did have the money and were willing to spend it. My kids usually come home and play in the village after school.” When asked what difference this learning center has made to her children, she tells us, “Now they always go to the village learning center to read there together most of the time. They come home with stories and they like to tell each other what they have read. Sometime they share the stories in bed with me and I am learning a lot of things that I did not know before. Thanks for helping us and thanks for giving the kids access to more information and books.” Ms Yangmojyid is filled with hope and joy that her children have a better start to life than she and he husband had.
