In 1984, FLM Haiti opened its first four literacy centers. Today, it supports more than 70 government-certified literacy centers in 11 communities; 103 educators serve this ministry with instruction in arithmetic, reading, and writing. Yearly, FLM Haiti graduates 1,256 young and adult Haitians who complete the two-year literacy program.
More than 11,000 people have received certifications of literacy through this program.In recent years, we’ve opened L’ecole Mixte Devese Pamphile, a kindergarten through grade 13 school in Thomassin that educates girls and boys from local communities.
FLM Haiti also provides service that empowers Haitians by working not only with their intellectual gifts, but also with their creative talents. Recently, FLM Haiti launched a sewing ministry -- a micro-enterprise where the primary goal is to establish a “sewing café,” where graduates from the sewing school can support and train others. In addition, the women get public health lessons in anatomy, healthy pregnancy, first aid, children’s literacy, and lessons in marketing/business.
