Illiteracy is a problem for many communities all over the world, and one of the countries widely affected is Nigeria. A lot of underprivileged children suffer from poverty when they grow up because they are illiterate. Chief Stephen O. Nwankwo Children’s Literacy Foundation International Incorporated strives to promote literacy by reaching out to kind hearts of the people who want to live in a better world and conducting programs that help children learn.
There may be no cure for illiteracy, but you can help make it better. As educators of Child Education International, we also encourage people to teach children some basics as a milestone to becoming literate. Here are a few things you can do for these children:
- Teach Them How to Read
Learning how to read is essential to understand written words and instructions. Children cannot always rely on verbal communication. There is more information on books than what people can tell them. Most people nowadays also use gadgets and social media to relay information. If these children know how to read, they can better understand and communicate with their peers.
- Teach Them Basic Mathematics, Science, and Ethics
When children learn basic mathematics, science, and ethics, it gives them the opportunity to develop and use their cognitive skills to become successful in future businesses. It also improves their problem-solving skills and logical reasoning.
- Teach Them How to Use the Computer
When children know how to use the computer, they will be able to access all sorts of information on the Web. It will give them the push to research the things they want to know and improve their computer skills. Computer skills have also become increasingly valuable because most companies nowadays depend upon computerized technology to get the business tasks done.
- Teach Them Proper Hygiene
When you teach children decent hygiene, you give them a better sense of independence, especially when they learn to care for themselves. When they learn proper bathing and grooming, you also help them improve their health and well-being..
