Lighting Excitement for Excellency in Reading Activity: Lighting Excitement for Excellency in Reading (LEER) is a five year activity with the overall objective of increasing the reading skills of students in targeted areas by supporting sustainable best practices in education in the Dominican Republic. The activity will improve reading skills of approximately 200,000
primary school students in targeted poor neighborhoods through improved instruction and the use of traditional and supplemental reading activities.
