“Even though we have eyes, we lived like blind people.”

–a literacy student

When you’re illiterate, you’re not just blind to reading and writing. You’re blind to being cheated in the market, the need for your kids to be in school, healthy food and good hygiene, and your rights as a citizen of your nation... the list could go on and on.

Transformation in 52 Weeks

The holistic and practical lessons empower students to read and write at a 5th grade level, do 3‐digit math, save money, and increase income. In addition, they learn about healthy eating, good hygiene, sanitation, and social ills such as devaluing daughters and child marriage. Best of all, students are gently introduced to the Gospel through the wisdom of God’s Word and the story of Jesus.

“Literacy is a small tool that makes a big impact. Like dynamite.”

– Chiran, a literacy teacher
