Since its inception in 2006, LeapForWord has reached out to over 3.15 lakh teachers and 11.13 lakh students across 91 districts in 5 states. Impact evaluation has played a key role in our journey. We use a combination of methods such as Endline over Baseline, Treatment vs Control, Third Party evaluation, Written & Oral tests, etc. to evaluate the impact created by LeapForWord on students across India. We evaluate students based on multiple capabilities such as reading, spelling, etc. across the English Literacy Program’s four levels: ER, AR, EC & AC.
Other than these tangible results, when kids at an age of 9-10 are able to read & understand English, their confidence soars sky high, They start believing that they can do anything they wish for and this we believe is LeapForWord’s greatest contribution.
