Over 30 years of war has shattered the DRC as infrastructure, economy, and ability to provide basic services such as education. Once a woman learns to read and write in our program, she can run her own business, join a woman as cooperative and pass her literacy skills on to her children. We are helping women not just to live but to the thrive.
As seen on 60 Minutes, our program teaches women literacy and writing skills. Program graduates have become businesswomen, farmers and community leaders; supporting our conviction that stronger women build stronger nations.
Creating a literate society in the DRC is a way of engaging women in creating lasting change and stability within the country. If we can stabilize the women we serve, they can in turn help stabilize their communities and their countries.
