You may have tangible wealth untold; caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. Richer than I you can never be. I had a mother who read to me. — Strickland Gillian
“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope. It is a tool for daily life in modern society. It is a bulwark against poverty, and a building block of development, an essential complement to investments in roads, dams, clinics and factories. Literacy is a platform for democratization, and a vehicle for the promotion of cultural and national identity. Especially for girls and women, it is an agent of family health and nutrition. For everyone, everywhere, literacy is, along with education in general, a basic human right.... Literacy is, finally, the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realize his or her full potential.” ― Kofi Annan
A study made last year in 2014 was created to examine the impact that SC LAMP programs have in the families served and how it betters their quality of life. The results were determined by using pre and post surveys that the women fill out at the beginning and end of every school year. Some of the questions selected from the survey involved communication with their children, parenting techniques, Parent’s involvement in child’s education, etc.
Results show that more than 75% of women feel more comfortable communicating with their children and are more involved with their child’s education by the time they complete the program.
