With continuing grant assistance from Credit Suisse, Synergeia pursued the Reading Proficiency program for Manuel L. Quezon Elementary School (MLQES) in school year 2007-2008. The program, named by the community as the “Zero Non-Reader Program”, began two years ago with 850 Grade One pupils. On its third year, 700 Grade Three students and their teachers are directly benefiting from the program. Most of these pupils happen to be the same students who started with the program in school year 2005-2006 and are now reaping the fruits of sustained interventions to increase reading proficiency.
