Adult Literacy Programs in Guatemala
St. Leo’s, Mundo Exchange, and other donors have helped make the adult literacy program in Guatemala possible! This program has been ongoing for the past 20 years with no signs of slowing down. Students of all ages and from all walks of life achieve literacy in both reading and math. The main outreach of this program is to the adults in marginalized areas around Guatemala.
The ability to read and write opens the door for people in these marginalized communities understand their rights, independently comprehend documents before signing, boosts self esteem, and opens the door for potentail employment opportuntites.
We are never too old to learn! 🙂
