Review for Tools of Learning For Children, Sujjisujn, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am President and co-founder of Tools of Learning for Children. Our original mission was to help young children find success in life as adults by helping them Learn to read. We supply the Frontline Phonics reading system to preschools and early learning centers . More than 25,000 children have been helped since inception.
But I am equally as proud of the fact that "Tools" has a very active citizenship program which supplies pocket constitutions and declarations of Independence to 5000 students in 3 California counties each year.
We have become International. This year, the Kids Educational Engagement Project of Liberia (K.E.E.EP) asked us to help them get educational materials for children who did not have access to schools. My reaction was "God wants us to do this." We did. We were able to have 6 tons of materials donated through the Feed the Children Network. I am proud to be a part of Tools of Learning for Children. Good people doing really good things for the community and the Nation and the world

Review for Tools of Learning For Children, Sujjisujn, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Tools of Learning for Children has two programs. A citizenship program which distributes pocket constitutons to eigth graders in three counties. Teachers tell us that the students use them for reference during the year. And understand our government better after seeing the DVD of "A more perfect Union.' We reach about 10,000 kids each year. Feedback from teachers and some students has been wonderful.
Our Frontline Phonics Reading program has in the last two years been used to teach Hispanic children and their paents how to read English at ther Adult school. An unexpected bonus. It is a rewarding expereience to hear the young Hispanic children reading .
This year,Increase the number of boardmembers for the first time, we will be using our reading program in an Aftican-American church setting. Reaching the children who most need help in breaking the cycle of low information dependence. It is a joy to be associated with Tools of Learning for Children
