Our 2013 literacy training is starting next week, and once again we are offering two levels, for our continuing students. This critical program enables women who, due to a long and brutal conflict, the opportunity to learn to read and write.
To date over 500 women have participated in the program, attending classes twice a week for eight months. When a woman learns to read and write, her whole world changes; possibilities and opportunities are created.This year we are hoping to provide 10 additional women with this transformative opportunity, totalling 110 women and their families to participate.
In addition, our literacy students participate in many community based programs, become leaders and advocates in their communiuty. Last week some of our literacy students marched in celebration of International Women's Day.
With the help of our Global Giving donors, we will be able to continue this important program. The best way to create sustainable human development and peace is to focus on women Access to education is a human right, thank you for your committment to social justice.
