Adult Literacy Classes

With nearly 300 million illiterate adults, India is the most illiterate nation on earth.

ALC Key

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

–an Adult Literacy Class student

When you’re illiterate, you’re not just blind to reading and writing. You’re blind to being cheated in your wages, the need for healthy food and good hygiene, your own rights, your children's need for education... the list could go on and on.

Transformation in 52 Weeks

Graduates of Adult Literacy Classes walk out with holistically-transformed lives. In addition to learning 5th grade-level reading, writing, and math, students are empowered with the knowledge needed to save money and increase income. They learn about healthy eating, good hygiene, and social ills such as devaluing daughters. In addition to being set free from the confines of illiteracy, students hear the hope of the Gospel.

“This program has helped me to support my family. Today I have become something.”

– Habiba, an Adult Literacy Class student
