Andrews Federal Credit Union donated $900 to the SHAPE American Elementary School in Mons, Belgium for the purchase of the RAZ-KIDS software program. This program is designed to teach children how to read while testing reading comprehension along the way. Andrews Federal learned of the need for this program through its ongoing partnership with the school. This program will be used mainly with students who come from homes where English is not the primary language spoken.

“You cannot put a price on the ability to read”, said Joshua Barrett, Branch Manager at the Chievres, Belgium branch, “Watching these students use the program and learn brings me such joy. I am happy that we were able to provide this for them.”
