HFK's First Graduating Class - Level One Literacy Training
Today, September 8th is World Literacy Day and we have something BIG to celebrate! Hope for Korah's very first graduating class of adult women from Level One Literacy Training in Amharic reading and writing!! Last Thursday was Graduation Day and the air was filled with enthusiasm and hope. Our twenty-four Hope for Korah graduates walked around proudly with certificates in their hands and a sense of accomplishment written all over their faces. What a joy it is to see these women empowered in such a simple yet profound way!
Congratulations Hariguah, Tigist and Rahema
for placing in the top three of your class!
In February 2015, Hope for Korah (HFK) began offering its first literacy course through the Income Generation program. The local government office provides
