What is happening at IRWP?
The first few months of 2017 have been busy! The support from our community brought new teachers, welcome cards for students, supplies, donations, and a variety of individual fundraisers. Thanks to this wonderful support, 76 new students have started learning new English skills with the help of their volunteer teacher. 83 new volunteers have been trained! Currently 206 volunteers are working with 215 students with more meeting a new teacher soon! This is over 50% more than this time last year. We continue to receive referrals for more people in need of a teacher each week. We thank everyone who has reached out to help in so many different ways to make a positive, personal impact.
