THE MENTORING PROGRAM

Last year we mentored in two schools, in two subjects, mainly – English language and Mathematics.  After assessing the kids we have decided to concentrate on a smaller number of topics in order to have more success than struggling to cover all the topics in the short time we spend with them, hence we will have more time for each subject and a better chance of teaching into detail. So we have divided the syllabus for each subject into half. We will be working on only that half throughout that year.

For consistency sake, each form will study two subjects per term. There are 4 months in each term, so two months for each subject. Eg. For the first two months, all form 1s will be mentored on Maths, all form 2s on Integrated Science and all form 3s on English language. And so on…

Mentoring guide & mentors

We will make the guide for each mentoring session available a week before each session. We encourage more people to sign up for the mentoring program. Volunteers can plan ahead and schedule the week they want to mentor in each month or one month, whichever suits you. You can let us know now if you we should put your name down for 2nd week in March or 1st week in April. Tell a friend to tell a friend to tell a stranger to tell a lover. The people who volunteer, the more kids we can reach to. We encourage everyone to volunteer as early as possible or register for a date to volunteer as early as possible; no mentor is going to the class unprepared.

We’re open to suggestions / comments that will make us better. If you have any such comments, kindly mail us at loverocs@gmail.com

New year, better results.

Happy new year! (the year is still new right? even if it’s February :-))

We hope 2014 has been good to you so far. At Love Rocks, we are geared up and ready for this year to be even better than last year. Remember READiness? The poetry and music show we put together to raise funds to buy books for the students we have been mentoring. Below are some of the pictures from the event.

Thanks to everyone who came out that night to support us, the organizers, the mc, the artists and the wonderful audience. Thanks to you guys, we were able to raise ¢802 cedis. With that money, we have been able to purchase 100 copies each of 3 books:

The gods are not to blame by Ola Rotimi, 

The marriage of Anansewaa by Efua Sutherland and

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Making a total of 300 books.

We will be distributing these books to 3 schools, giving each school a mix up of 100 books each. 

We will be sending video and photo updates when next we make a trip to these schools. We couldn’t have made this possible without you. Thank you once again!

We still want to reach a larger number of students, If anyone is interested in donating books or money, please send an email to loverocs@gmail.com
