WORK CONTEXT / BACKGROUND:
WV International Lao PDR is in the final progress of getting approval from Japan Government of a grant to implement iREAD (Improved Reading, Environment and Advancement in school for children) in Thapangthong district, Svannakhet province. The project will implement Unlocking Literacy (UL), an evidence-based approach that aims to improve teaching methods for classroom reading and to engage students, families and communities in reading activities outside of school. UL brings a holistic approach that works with teachers, parents and community members to create a supportive literacy environment that can sustain reading improvements for children – both in and out of school. The activities are built around promoting the five core reading skills that research shows are central to learning to read: letter knowledge, phonemic awareness, reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. This model has a strong assessment component, its baseline serves not only for endline comparisons but also diagnostically, for informing and modifying the design of the intervention.
Fit for School: The model focuses on providing training and support for teachers to implement a daily hand-washing and tooth-brushing activity with students. Hand-washing stations (called Washalots) are installed in each school (with the number of stations depending on the number of students at the school) to support these daily hygiene activities.
School Sanitation and Hygiene Triggering (SHT): The School Sanitation & Hygiene Triggering basic method is activity-based and child-center model which includes games, exercises, theory and interaction between children. The messages deal with improved school sanitation, disposal of human excreta and other personal hygiene issues, with the expectation that the learning will be spread by the children to their homes and communities.
