Literacy class update

We have invited the parents of the children at Gentille Hirondelle elementary school to be the first students in our new adult literacy class. Here is a photo from our first meeting with out first class. The first 10-month course will begin this June!

Can you sponsor a Haitian adult to learn to read and write for the first time? The cost is a mere $10 a month to be a continuous sponsor for several students or $70 total for the 10-month course for 1 student. This includes all books and supplies. Although our original idea was to have a one-month course for $30, the 10-month curriculum we decided on for $70 a student is much more longer and more thorough.

Literacy is such a valuable gift that we take for granted; can you help share that gift with an illiterate adult?
