One out of four adults in Trinidad and Tobago is unable to perform basic, everyday reading and writing skills.
Less than half the adult population can read and understand the newspapers and simple medicine labels.
In Trinidad and Tobago today if you are not literate, you are left out of life. Literacy is the key to a good job, access to services, participation in community, school and church. Sponsoring an ALTA student will enable ALTA to continue offering free literacy classes to the national community, benefiting existing and potential literacy students.
In the spirit of giving, sponsor an ALTA student at a class in your community or anywhere around the country for $200 TTD (for one term) or $600 TTD (for one year). If you donate $600 you will receive a report of the progress of the student you chose to sponsor at the end of the year.
If you would like to sponsor an ALTA student, here are the two steps:
– Via cheque (The Adult Literacy Tutors Association), Linx or cash at any of our offices (Belmont – POS, San Fernando, Arima)
– Bank transfer (online or at any Republic Bank Limited branch). Bank Info: The Adult Literacy Tutors Association, Republic Bank Limited, Elerslie Plaza, Acc No: 3405028337401
– Visit any NLCB Lotto Center and tell the operator you wish to donate to The Adult Literacy Tutors Association with Account Number 14 and provide your $200 or $600 donation and you receive a receipt – take a quick picture of the receipt and send it to us.
