Literacy Development for disadvantaged children.
The Early Learning Programme (ELP) is a volunteer organisation of experienced persons ( one of which is Lion Renee de Bruyn ) supporting children in the earliest stages of learning, to read and write and to strengthen language and literacy development. Many of these children come from disadvantaged communities amongst which are children from other language groups learning English as a second language.
The ELP is currently in progress at the Kronendal Primary School in Hout Bay, and soon to commence at Oranjekloof/Moravian School. Other volunteers are operating in a number of Primary Schools in Hout Bay. Volunteers assist Grade R and Grade One children develop foundation skills in Reading and Writing.
Hout Bay Lions Club donated a generous amount for the purchase of the required learning aids for the project.
