Adult Literacy

Why does education matter so much to health? The links are complex— tied closely to income and to the skills and opportunities that people have to earn a living. Lower income and fewer resources mean that people with less education are more likely to lack the resources for good health. Today H.O.P.E. supports several projects to help adults and children alike, achieve their personal educational goals. The "Lekol Alfa” program in particular, reaches the adult population who are anxious to learn how to read and write, with community led volunteer teaching sessions and a formal training process. Over the last 3 years, 300+ adults have enrolled in the adult literacy program, and 80% have successfully completed the class! 

If you're an individual, group, or organization interested in sponsoring the Lekol Alfa program, please contact asmythe@hopehaiti.org to learn more.
