Years of experience have shown us that the relationship between parents and their children improves and expands if they can introduce their children to literature and accompany them on the path of language and literacy learning. Therefore, education for families, especially for mothers, has become more prominent in the Read with Me project so that they can share quality books with their children.

Functional literacy, teaches literacy to mothers based on their needs in daily life. The program consists of weekly sessions where mothers learn basic literacy skills and are provided with books to read and share with their children. The sessions also include discussions on child development, health, and well-being. The program aims to create a supportive and empowering environment for mothers to learn and grow.

The long-term goal of this program is to apply the intergenerational literacy in practice and empower mothers to take an active role in sharing books with their children and also their children’s education and development.
