Sponsor an ALTA Student for Christmas

i Nov 27th No Comments by

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.


This Christmas we give you TWO options:


  1. 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.

  2. Purchase a Gift of Reading Certificate as a gift for a colleague, friend or family member. A donation will be given in their name to sponsor an ALTA student for one term ($200 TTD) or one year ($600 TTD).


If you would like to purchase a Gift of Reading Certificate:

  1. Call or email us your order beforehand. Give us one (1) business day to get the order ready.

  2. Come in to any of our offices in Belmont, Arima or San Fernando. We accept cheques (The Adult Literacy Tutors Association), Linx and cash. You can also make a bank deposit and come in with the receipt if this works for you.

If you would like to sponsor an ALTA student:

  1. Complete the Sponsor a Student form online:

  2. Make payment via cheque (The Adult Literacy Tutors Association), Linx or cash at any of our offices.

  3. You can also 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.
