Literacy part II

In 2012 WGEF created a two-tiered literacy class. With the help of Global Giving donors, we are offering women who have participated in the past, wanting to further their literacy training the opportunity to attend level two classes. We have 100 women participating, learning skills, creating a brighter future. Literacy is extremely important to our clients, many of whom are formerly abducted child soldiers, sex slaves and former IDP's. When a woman learns to read and write, her whole world opens up....

As we head into the second half of our schedule, we are hopeful donors will continue to support our literacy program; we want to include 25 additional women in the beginning class and are hopeful we can make that happen. As part of our program participants will be hosting a debate, highlighting new abilities, addressing the issues of educating women and girls. This event will occur in conjunction with our annual drama festival in October.

Say 'Yes' to literacy, empowerment and equality! Thank you for your commitment to social justice and women's empowerment!
