*CARE is a child-safe organisation, and the name has been changed

Jacinta Amaral* is a third grade student in Timor-Leste who loves reading the stories in Lafaek Magazine. In second grade, Jacinta received Lafaek Ki’ik magazine, but was unable to read it by herself. Her favourite story in Lafaek Ki’ik was called ‘Asika the Pilot’, about a girl who flies planes.

 

With the help of her teacher, Lucia Ferreira Cardoso, Jacinta is now able to ready Lafaek Prima on her own. Jacinta says she feels very happy because she can now read the stories by herself. She carries the magazines to school to read by herself, and test her reading skills with her friends in class.

 

Lucia says the magazines have made a huge difference to Jacinta’s learning comprehension: “At first, I taught Jacinta the letters, and then I taught her syllables and how to spell words with two to three letters,” she explains. 

 

“The result has been very good, Jacinta can now read alone. I feel very happy when she I see Jacinta reading.”
