2011 Project 1: Teaching 100 Nepali Women to Read and Write

Literacy brings independence, freedom and a world of new experiences. Women who cannot read live a handicapped life. They cannot shop on their own because they cannot count change. They cannot travel by themselves because they cannot read the signs. They cannot help their children with homework or read a book to escape the drudgery of their lives. Not knowing how to read is like being locked out of the rest of the world. Board Director Gaby Fernandez, a student at Andrews University, thought this would be a great project for the girls in her dorm. The target was to take a year to raise the $1000 needed to start a women’s literacy program in Nepal. But the enthusiasm and drive of the women in the Lamson Hall dorm was underestimated. They raised the entire amount--and more--over just one weekend! The target is to teach at least a 100 women to read. That’s just 10 dollars to give a woman a new life--one with independence, self-worth and the potential to dream big! Check out the YouTube Video about the project.
