Early Literacy Program Helps Refugees Talk to Their Babies
By Jennifer Green, program director, Friends of Refugees
Stop by the Refugee Family Literacy Program in Clarkston, Ga., any day, and you’ll hear a lot of talking. This isn’t surprising, of course, since much of the focus there is on teaching English literacy. But at the end of each day, there is a special, delightful kind of talking that fills the classrooms—mothers talking to their children.
