Our adult literacy program helps women and men of Bon Repos, Haiti, with fundamental reading and writing skills in Haitian Creole. Our trained instructors provide two-hour-long evening classes, 3 days a week, to help over 100 adults with fundamental reading and writing skills in Haitian Creole and French.
Most of the adults that take part in these programs are women and are consequently encouraged to develop vocational skills.
Supplementing the literacy component, our basic health program addresses the needs of our students for basic medical care and instruction about general health and nutrition. Our participants have access to a local clinic in Terre Noir, a suburb within close proximity of Bon Repos.
