Like most of our tutor-student pairs, Caroline and Nebiye were forced to transition to online learning last year. Instead of seeing it as a challenge, they discovered it allowed for more opportunities to build a deeper connection.
“Seeing my student on a screen gives me a window into her world and has allowed me to meet her family, learn what she’s cooking, and see the plants she’s growing on her windowsill,” says Caroline.
Thanks to the support of our donors, LVCA was able to help make sure pairs like Caroline and Nebiye could continue tutoring despite the obstacles virtual learning placed on everyone.
“It’s a privilege to help others become part of our community through literacy,” says Caroline. “I’m always struck by what my students have gone through in order to live here and by how hard they work to become part of our community.”
