Its objectives include the dissemination of gender and development messages, providing assistance in the use of technology in developing the literacy of learners, and developing a love of reading among children.
The project designed a series of LINANG training for parents and grandparents of Pre K-3 learners to attain its ambitions with its partner school. To specify the focus for each training program: LINANG 1 โ€“ GAD Concepts and Messages; LINANG 2 โ€“ Technology Tools and Techno-literacy; LINANG 3 โ€“ Digital Storytelling; and LINANG 4 โ€“ IM Ready.
With the intent to strengthen families to support literacy development, these programs should create parentsโ€™ awareness of their vital role in the holistic development of the children.
