Enhancing Competency in English Language Communication in Jaffna

SIF brings together Singapore International Volunteers, the Singapore Ceylon Tamil community, Singapore businesses and institutions to Jaffna, Sri Lanka, to realise this project.

Volunteer librarians from NLB will share their experiences in Singapore’s youth’s library services and train Jaffna librarians in outreach techniques used to encourage youths in using English as a communication tool.
Over the next 12 months, experienced English Language teachers from Singapore will train Jaffna English teachers in English Language communication pedagogy so as to enhance the quality of English language teaching in secondary and high schools.

SIF’s latest community development project in Sri Lanka aims to enhance English Language communication skills of the youths in Jaffna, by equipping them with learning resources in English and training Jaffna’s English language teachers and librarians.
Collective efforts of the Singapore community – volunteers, businesses and institutions - will inspire a vibrant culture of English Language learning in Jaffna and effect positive changes in the lives of youth in terms of better jobs and opportunities.
A mobile library sponsored by Modern Montessori International Group (MMI) was donated to the Jaffna Public Library for operation among 38 schools and institutions, reaching out to an estimated 3,000 youths between 10 to 18 years.

Our Singapore International Volunteers Dilip Kumar and Joanne Koh from NLB, are sharing with Jaffna librarians, outreach activities that spur the interests of youths in acquiring conversational English skills.
The SIF worked with the Jaffna Public Library and National Library Board Singapore to design and equip a mobile library so that 3,000 Jaffna youth may enjoy greater access to English educational materials and facilities.
Some of the 3,000 Jaffna youths expected to benefit from the project are waiting to explore the mobile library stocked with English reading material, part of our initiative to raise their competency in English.
