Approximately 28,000 people, almost 1 person out of every 5 in the Concho Valley cannot read or understand any written information, or at best they can only locate easily identifiable information. Fortunately, this is a problem with a solution, and the solution is you. You can do something about this.
What can you do? You can…
Volunteer– Just a little of your time and talents can make a difference. Imagine the impact you could have on one person’s life by teaching him or her to read?
Learn – If you know someone who wants to learn English, or if you want to improve your own English skills, give us a call. We can help.
Give – Your donation is more than just money. It is a gift that will improve people’s lives and it is an investment in the solution to poverty, crime, and unemployment.
Help – Your help is vital, and when combined with support from organizations like the United Way, we can make a difference. Click here to see your community in action.
