“Kirra used to use the wrong words in sentences. She was embarrassed, so decided to not say anything. Having a reading buddy has given back her confidence to actually speak up,” said Charmaine.
“Everyone has noticed a huge improvement in Kirra. She is a lot more friendly. She isn't angry anymore – the little girl with everything against her. She has realised there are people out there who care about her.”
Charmaine’s daughters also attend one of our Learning Clubs. It’s a safe environment outside of school where they do their homework with assistance from our volunteer tutors.
“We get help at Learning Club if we don’t understand something. I really like going. It has helped me to go higher with my schoolwork,” said Kirra.
With ongoing support, Kirra and her sisters are continuing to blossom at school and Charmaine is so grateful.
“To everyone who makes this possible, you are the unsung heroes of little people. If it weren’t for you, they would be lost. And parents like me would not be able to give their children what they need. I can’t thank you enough!” said Charmaine.
