Your Effort Book is being put to good use for the students in two of the Capacity Building Projects. We have designed activity worksheets to assist the students in the comprehension of the great message depicted in the book. Students in the Youth English Class are the first group to commence this study with upper Primary to follow in the near future. These children will benefit greatly from this teaching.
