The Literacy Program for adults was one of the first adult programs HAC-Haiti started.
Seeing women struggle to read their church hymnal and bible and to even sign their child's report card, the program was designed to provide them basic reading, writing, and mathematic skills.
Studies have shown that learning these important skills drastically improve lives not just mentally,
but physically and emotionally as well . . . which impacts families and communities.
The Literacy Program has helped hundreds of women to increase their self-confidence and their ability to do business in Haiti thus providing a self-sustaining livelihood for their families.
Men eventually joined the program and continue to participate in small numbers.
