Developing stories in people’s native language is of paramount importance, as people learn to read best in their mother tongue. Our students and teachers at Seeds of Africa were thrilled when they received the Ready, Set, Go! books. This enthusiasm stemmed from finally having cultural stories they can connect and relate to written in Amharic combined with the English translation to help reinforce their language skills. Our students loved reading these stories as they describe characters and settings they recognize; motivating them to engage more.
The Ready, Set, Go! book series has been helping our students expand their vocabulary and improve their communication skills in both Amharic and English through very engaging and relatable content.
SEED’S mission is to educate and nurture children and their families through education and community development programs. They are a New York-based not-for-profit led by Atti Worku, one of our Advisory Board Members.
