For the people on the remote island of La Gonâve, Haiti, literacy opens doors to better jobs, civic involvement and voting, and the ability to help their children learn in school.

La Gonâve Haiti Partnership provides Haitian adults access to this critical aspect of education. And although their program only calls for two classes each week, their students are so enthusiastic that classes often meet four times a week instead. Both men and women dress up for class and are proud of what they have learned.

You can help. Just $10 provides one month of literacy training for one adult. This helps fund the workbooks and notebooks they use in class, as well as the salaries of the dedicated educators who teach them.

Update from the Field
January 2015

SDHSfire The program has been running 3+ years and over 800 adults have been enrolled in the classes! The primary school principals met over the last month and decided that the current curriculum was not strong enough to meet the needs as many of the adults did not even know how to form letters. The principals selected a teacher from the secondary school and completely revamped the adult literacy program turning it into a two phase program with a higher expected literacy level upon completion. It is now designed, led and completely managed by Haitians. - Lee Wilder of The La Gonâve Haiti Partnership

The La Gonâve Haiti Partnership works with rural communities on the island of La Gonâve in the areas of education, economic development, and healthcare. Our mission is to equip Haitians with the skills and resources needed to achieve their goals for a better life. We offer partnership and accompaniment rather than aid.
