Language Resource Materials: We collaborate with our partners to publish teaching-learning materials in our target languages for use in non-formal literacy classes, primary school, and for newly literate readers.

  • Alphabet books: These introductory books introduce learners to all the letters of the alphabet, using illustrations to aid understanding. They also include numbers and some common words. Click below to view sample pages from the Limbu and Tharu alphabet books.

  • Word-building books: These books are a crucial part of our strategy for teaching literacy. Each page introduces a new letter while reinforcing students’ knowledge of previously learned letters. Teachers use strategies learned in trainings to base a lesson on the key words and letters on each page. The Tharu word-building book is bilingual; one half teaches Tharu while the other half is in Nepali. Click below to view pages from the Tharu and Limbu word-building books.

  • Learner-generated materials: Newly literate participants in non-formal literacy classes themselves wrote the stories, songs and poems in these books, which are about topics relevant to other new readers. Using learner-generated materials in class makes the authors confident in their writing ability, and gives new learners an idea of what they will be able to achieve after completing literacy classes.
