The Second Step in Our Recipe
Once families can gain control of their fertility, they inevitably turn to education as the next step in improving quality-of-life. Parents (who might be illiterate themselves) are passionate about giving their children the best possible future through schooling. They know full well that education is the key to their children’s future and to developing their community.
As early as 1979, we began to personally tutor adults and children in our valley in basic skills and literacy. Over the years, those early informal lessons have evolved into our Rural Education initiative. Children from illiterate families can now go all the way to college in one generation! This is real impact at a low cost.
