Literacy Programs

Illiteracy is a huge obstacle for the Wayuu People.  66% of their population do not know how to read or write.  Wayuu children are often discouraged by their inabilities to keep up with their peers in the classroom.  So, many of them drop out believing that an education is worthless. Bread of Hope seeks to bring value to these Wayuu children and a hope for a better future.  Teaching them the power of an education through our literacy classes.  We have over 600 Wayuu students enrolled.  Each one of them is assessed and tutored in the areas they need in order to level up to their age group.  Their classes are always Christ-centered.  We intentionally use this time to teach them about the gospel and God’s Word.  Our desire is that these children will not only be educated but also be faithful followers of Christ.
