OUR PROGRAMS

Alfalit believes that Literacy is a fundamental right that changes lives. Since 1961, our grassroots-approach with in-country affiliate organizations has effectively reached those with the greatest needs. On average, 85% of all enrolled students graduate from Alfalit programs every year.

Literacy

Equivalent to a 3rd grade education, upon completion students have a 1,471-word vocabulary. They can read, write and complete basic math computations. Completion time: about 9 months.





Basic Education

Available to students who successfully complete Literacy training, this advanced class provides the equivalent of a 6th grade education. Graduates are encouraged to continue their formal studies. In many countries, thanks to partnerships with Ministries of Education, Alfalit’s certification is recognized and enables appropriate student placements - and this bolsters the self-confidence of our students.

Early Childhood Development

Our tiniest students learn basic skills like counting, colors and words. Students are better prepared to enter elementary schools and typically do better than their non-early educated counterparts.




Conversational English

Adult, non-English speakers gain the ability to use English with self-assurance in basic, everyday situations. In the United States, this helps our non-native residents become a part of the community in a quicker manner and contribute more to society as a whole.

Job & Vocational Training

Earning an income helps individuals, families and communities. This program provides skill-based training to adults who would otherwise be unemployable in the poor countries served by Alfalit.

OUR IMPACT

We bring adult literacy, basic education, preschool, conversational English and job skills to people living in poverty. Alfalit believes literacy is a fundamental right for all individuals.
