Teach Ten Adults to Read

FUNDED July 2 2013 – Thank You!

LaGonave_ExienneLocated west-northwest of Port-au-Prince in the Gulf of Gonâve, the island of La Gonave has been called the “lost island” and “the land that Haiti forgot.” Yet 80,000 people who live there are committed to improving conditions, reversing decades of overgrazing and deforestation.

For twenty years, the La Gonave-Haiti Partnership has worked with the people of La Gonave to help them achieve their goals through better access to education, healthcare, and economic development.

Approximately two years ago, a woman in the community of Nan Mango asked if someone could teach her how to read and write. Today, the Partnership sponsors adult literacy classes in ten communities and more than 150 adults have achieved the equivalent of 6th grade literacy.

Here Exienne shows off the paper where she wrote her name, a skill she just recently learned.

La Gonave-Haiti Partnership believes that adult literacy is the foundation of all economic development and continue to expand their program. There are waiting lists for classes in each community.

“Hope makes one live”

These and other proverbs illustrate the work of La Gonave Haiti Partnership, a collaborative effort to address the issues facing the people of the region:

In 2008, men on motorcycles sprayed acid into the faces of teachers and students walking to school, targeting girls wearing school uniforms. Donors rallied and purchased a school bus so this would never happen again. Keeping these buses running is costly. Funding is needed to help pay for the bus drivers, fuel and on-going maintenance. With your support, we can continue to provide safe passage to school for girls in Afghanistan.
