Literacy classes

Transform lives through the gift of literacy classes

This gift could help provide a woman with a whole year's worth of literacy classes, giving her the skills she needs to create a better future for her and her family.

Through education, women can change their status in their communities and seek more opportunities, such as launching their own small business and earning their own income.

Being unable to read and write keeps women in poverty. Help to transform lives by buying the gift of literacy classes today.
