Adult Literacy has begun!

Last night was the first adult literacy class!  Sponsors paid a onetime fee of $12 to provide 24 students with the instruction booklet you see below as well as a second booklet when they are ready.  We also have 1.5 months of the teacher's salary covered.  If you feel led to cover more of the teacher's salary, please see an earlier post for donation instructions.  What a gift it is to be able to provide this basic dignity to these beautiful elders!

(Dieufort is still in need of a $40 monthly sponsor....he is such a wonderful man!)

Adult Literacy Teacher

I would like to introduce Nelly Altidor, a new teacher at Grace Academy, who will start teaching an adult literacy program on Tuesday, March 5th.  We are so excited for this program and the dignity we will bring to 10 of the elders in our ElderCare program as well as 14 other adults in Titanyen.  Please join us in praying for Pwofese Altidor and all of the students.  If you are interested in supporting this program financially, please consider making a onetime donation of $12 for one student's curriculum materials or $117 for a months salary for our new teacher! Details at http://healinghaiti.org/pages/AdultLiteracy/ .
