H.E.L.P. literacy classes are more than just learning how to read. Students are taught basic math, reading, writing, and life skills. This enables them to start businesses, teach their children and most importantly, read the Bible.
More than 95% women attend the classes. By becoming literate and learning other skills, they value themselves more and are no longer ashamed of being illiterate. Becoming literate has a rippling effect throughout the entire family life. They value their children more, can earn an income, and have more understanding which keeps them from selling their children into human trafficking.
