English literacy rate 1. Students low confidence in speaking English. 2. Students rate English as their second weaker subject. 3. The gap between of privilege and underserved students in the English education.


Speak Up project is being organized for six (6) weeks in primary or secondary schools in a flow from Week 1 to Week 6 to ensure sustainable impacts – “They Know”, “They Care”, “They Do” and “They Influence”. Throughout the six (6) weeks, the students will be facilitated by the volunteers from other countries which have been carefully chosen through the interviews. Part of the additional value from the volunteers is that they are speaking in English and they can draw students attention and be a role model for the students. Phase 1 – “They Know” & Phase 2 – “They Care” We organize workshops which last for about four (4) to five (5) weeks consist of about a class of students to raise awareness about the importance and benefits of speaking English and there are also some activities being held in the workshops to help to build their confidence in speaking English. Phase 3 – “They Do” Where students and the volunteers have a discussion and plan some sustainable activities to run in the schools after six (6) weeks after the project ended. Phase 4 – “They Influence” Through the experience that the students gained in the workshop, they organize the activities planned to encourage more friends to join and to speak English. In Speak Up project, we do not target a big group of students. Instead, we target a small group of students to make sure that they are impacted and 2 What Solution are you providing to the problem?finally to impact more peers and create a ripple effect.
