BENEFITING: National Center for Families Learning
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2013
Thanks for visiting my page! I am asking you to donate to a cause immensely important to me, not just as an NCFL employee, but also as an individual who believes in empowering vulnerable families through literacy and learning. For years, I have dedicated my academic and professional career to working alongside immigrant and refugee populations in America. While in the resettlement field, I have met some of the most incredible, passionate, and driven people—individuals from diverse backgrounds with varied circumstances – all wholeheartedly dedicated to building a life for themselves and their families in the states. One commonality I’ve found in my personal experience: English literacy and learning is at the root of success for these individuals and their families. Employment, finance, healthcare, housing – all these factors that affect each of us on a daily basis require a certain level of literacy to navigate, an issue that is amplified for those facing barriers to English language proficiency. Help to ensure that all families in America have access to educational resources that empower them to succeed. Donate today!
