Your support is changing women's lives!
Illiteracy is still the stronghold that keeps millions of people in poverty around the world. Brushed off by society and lacking opportunity, many illiterate women and men feel a deep sense of unworthiness and are completely at the mercy of those around them.
Working with local partners, BLC is working to teach adults (mostly women) how to read and write. Each lesson goes beyond basic literacy: they teach practical life skills such as hygiene, sanitation, and small business skills. It changes everything about their lives, from hopelessness to confidence. From poverty to sustainability. From powerless to empowered. And you can help!
$45 will teach someone who doesn't even know how to write their own name, to a grade 5 level of literacy in just one year!
