These are some of the questions to be answered by our 2 avid story tellers in a fireside chat style panel discussion. Come and discover the power of stories!

Love Through Phonics

Serving the Urban Poor

Most parents want to see their children do well in school and life, and one of the key stepping stones is the ability to read. Unfortunately, the literacy rate among the urban poor across Asia remains low.

Steady Readers Missions’ (SRM) vision is to build bridges with these poorer communities by teaching their children to read through phonics. Research shows that phonics, when taught at an early age, can lay a foundation for the success of a child.

In this workshop, we share what SRM program is all about and how our partners, Aimee Paredes from Care Channels International and Josie Verona from Luzon Bible Church in Philippines have implemented the SRM program which has benefitted children in their communities.

Speakers

Josie was an early childhood education teacher for over 20 years. Since 2016, she has been teaching 5th and 6th graders. She discovered that many of them were struggling in reading and she wanted to help them.

That year, she was trained in Steady Readers Program – to teach phonics. Teaching is her dream and passion. She loves to touch lives and win them for Jesus.

Aimee Paredes became a believer of Jesus Christ during her high school days. Since then, in 1989, she has a renewed purpose in life – to exalt Christ! She started to serve God in the different ministries of her church and in 1991, she responded to the call of God to serve him full-time.

Currently, she is serving with Care Channels, Inc. (CCI) – a non-profit organization working among the poor and unreached in Asia. She served as one of the board directors in the Philippines – helping to raise more stakeholders to join CCI’s mission cause. She is also serving in several capacities within the organization – farm manager, community development trainer and field missionary worker.
