This is an outstanding organization where only 8% goes to cover all administrative costs, and 92% actually goes to the people, spreading literacy to 125,000 students yearly, in over 22 countries, all at a cost of only $60.00 per student. The staff is amazing, the cause is amazing, the administration is amazing. They provide books, train the teachers, food, even help create and train for a sustainable vocation in rural places so that the people are empowered and can pass on the empowerment to eliminate hunger and poverty.
