BCCA is so proud of our Anna House mothers for completing the first Women's Literacy session! The mothers were able to expand their English vocabulary while also gaining confidence in communicating with others in their everyday life. When the mothers were asked what they enjoyed most about the class, here were a few of the responses:
"My children now enjoy reading with me and sharing stories about what they do in school."
"I enjoy learning English and spending more time reading with my children and with my teachers and my classmates."
"I used to be afraid to answer the telephone in English, but now I have more confidence to communicate with others and my children have noticed this new change in me."
We are so grateful to the New York Women's Foundation for helping make this amazing program possible!
