Lexia Helps Ugandan Orphans
Lexia is changing lives for some children at an orphanage in Uganda.
This is Sali – a beautiful Ugandan boy (approximately 13 years old) who is using Lexia in Entebbe, Uganda. He is one of the 44 children who call Malayaka House home.
Sara Baker, a Learning Specialist who uses Lexia at her school in the United States, visits and volunteers at Malayaka House every year, helping their kids achieve reading success!
