- Since our inception in 2009, we have reached out to 40,000+ students from regional language rural schools through 3,500+ teachers.
- Average score in Reading amongst grade 4 LeapForWord students when tested on a standardized English test (ASER) was 2 times the national average (86% v/s 42%)
- Average score amongst grade 5 students on Vocabulary was 100% compared to the national average of 60%.
- The English Literacy Program is a Voluntary Adoption program. We see 50% of teachers voluntarily adopt this program in their school after the training.
- Other than these tangible results, when kids at an age of 9-10 are able to read & understand English, their confidence soars sky high, They start believing that they can do anything they wish for and this we believe is LeapForWord’s greatest contribution.
What puts smiles on our face is the positive impact on the lives of the teachers and students.
