Prosper group wins Council grant for English as a Second Language project
The Inner West Council is proud to announce the Prosper (Project Australia) group has been awarded a $6,900 Council grant for the delivery of an English as a Second Language Health Information Project.
Inner West Deputy Mayor Julie Passas said the Prosper group was a very worthy recipient of the grant.
“Prosper is a great organisation that does a lot of great work in the community, teaching English and delivering important health information to those that need it the most,” said Deputy Mayor Passas.
The Prosper project uses a qualified English as a Second Language teacher to support the development of English-language skills and early childhood health literacy in culturally and linguistically diverse families.
Prosper does this via the delivery of vital health and wellbeing information, offered in the setting of local playgroups throughout the Inner West.
“Prosper’s literacy work makes a real difference to the local community. It ensures that all residents can seek out, share and enjoy all the benefits the Inner West has to offer,” said Deputy Mayor Passas.
