What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Literacy Centers

Literacy is key to opening up a world of possibilities – the foundation of self-reliance! For many adults, education is interrupted due to a lack of funds. A Literacy Center offers 5 tracks of continuing education:

Family
Literacy
Academic
Vocational
Leadership
Each track is designed to facilitate progress for the individual, as well as their family. Join our family of learners and mentors!

Population(s) Served
People of African descent
Families
Age groups
Economically disadvantaged people

We have the potential to bless more lives and strengthen more families. We are building Family Restoration Centers designed as a place of safety where people can receive help and healing as they begin their journey to self-reliance. The 5 education tracks administered through our Literacy Centers will be implemented and magnified through on-site residential facilities for women and children healing from trauma, to assist them in furthering their education, including vocational training, and to assist them to regain self-respect, confidence, and healthy wholeness. We are currently renovating one FRC location in Ghana and have already "graduated" two families from the program as of 2020.

Population(s) Served
Families
Victims and oppressed people

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    Adults in Ghana, Kenya, and Liberia who attend our Literacy Centers to gain better literacy skills. Children also attend our Literacy Centers. Children come to our LC's as an after-school activity to read the books on the shelves, do puzzles, and play educational games. We also serve families who are separated by poverty, to be reunited through basic literacy, financial and vocation skills so they can provide for their children.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Focus groups or interviews (by phone or in person),

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To inform the development of new programs/projects, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    A group of 45 adult graduates from our literacy program was moving on to vocational training at our sewing school. Not all graduates wanted to attend the sewing school, but rather had other interests. We are now exploring how to partner with other NGO's in the area to provide learning opportunities for these other adult graduates to gain other vocational training.
