REPORT-BACK ON CISPES LITERACY BRIGADE DELEGATION TO EL SALVADOR
HEAR ABOUT EL SALVADOR’S SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM TO ELIMINATE ADULT ILLITERACY!!

Responding to the CALL FOR SOLIDARITY from the Salvadoran Ministry of Education, a delegation from the United States organized by the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES) went to El Salvador to accompany youth volunteers who are teaching adults to read and write.

Since 2010, OVER 140,000 ADULTS have learned to read for free through this government initiative! Find out how this program is deepening democratic changes in the country.

Four delegates from San Francisco went to El Salvador to join the Literacy Brigades. Come and hear their stories. This is a breakfast fundraiser to raise material aid for Salvadoran women's, youth, and labor organizations.
