Watchi Literacy Program in Togo
In Togo, West Africa, ILAD has been conducting a program to build a strong literacy foundation among adults in their mother tongue, enabling community members to learn to read and write in their own language.
Some of the benefits that literacy is bringing to these families are:
- Income improvement and hunger relief – these farmers now have access to materials about improved farming methods, managing resources, and income diversification;
- Improved nutrition and health- these families can now read vital health information about disease prevention and treatment in their own language;
- Increased self-esteem and dignity.
During the past 3 years, through literacy classes and literacy teacher trainings in 4 different locations, ILAD has been able to graduate 135 participants from our literacy classes. We would like to increase our reach by adding 2 new teachers and 3 new locations to impact over 200 families.
Project Need is $1000 per class for 8 literacy classes: Total $8000
$45 can provide one year of literacy training for one person
