The ever popular Mobile Literacy Classes are underway with 10 classes running from 1 May to 31 August for 350 women.  We fully anticipate that 85-90% of these women will be reading at the 4th grade level by the end of the 4 months. That is how effective this literacy program is!  Texting is used as a means to accelerate literacy acquisition, engage women in discourse and create social bonds reducing isolation. The teacher sets questions by text which the students must respond to in kind.All students love this format and text much more than required by the syllabus. The students start out with little or no literacy skill, quickly progressing while having fun and socializing.

Thanks for your support.

Educational Opportunity for many Girls

We are providing education to a growing number of women and girls of all ages and backgrounds. In the first two months of the year, we brought education to over 9,236 girls in subjects such as literacy, English, Arabic, and computers. We have also provided these women and girls with opportunities to gain skills in sewing, tailoring, carpet and silk weaving, macramé, and painting.

All of these skills open doors to careers and other opportunities to make an income. In addition, our Fast-Track program has opened doors to women and girls by providing them with flexible schedules to learn the basics as fast or as slow as they are able to. We wish to thank you all for your generosity and compassion in making these hopeful changes possible!

One center reported recently, “One of our sewing graduates has become a sewing teacher at a learning center. She now has 25 students that she teaches every day. The students are happy to have her as their teacher and are learning many things each day.”
