MEET THE LOCALS WHO LAFAEK HAS HELPED

The Child

Rosa and her brother both benefit from the Lafaek magazines they receive at school. Aside from helping them study, the literacy games help them interact more at home.

When Rosa grows up she wants to be a teacher, but for now she really enjoys school and the educational content in Lafaek.

Rosa adds shyly “I also like the stories”.

The Teacher

“Thanks to Lafaek, students have been motivated to extend their ambitions for the future. The illustrations help the children dream big. Some want to be doctors, teachers or pilots. I tell them it is their calling and the best thing they can do right now to reach their calling is to study.

Some of my old students came back to the community to serve as doctors, I am so proud of that.”

The Mother

Eufemia is thrilled that her children benefit from Lafaek Prima, an educational magazine written for children enrolled in grades 3-4 to improve literacy, numeracy and strengthen girls’ leadership and decision making.

“Education is the opportunity for kids to grow, learn and to create a better future. I hope for my children to one day come back and serve their community” says Eufemia.

HOW LAFAEK HELPED ROSA

Rosa lives in a remote rural village of Timor-Leste. Her mother’s face lights up when she talks about the good Lafaek has brought to her family:

“I am very happy because Lafaek has meant my two children interact more … They especially like the games about literacy. Those help them to study as well.”

Rosa adds shyly “I like the stories.”
