Literacy Programs

One way to improve opportunities for women to better their lives is to improve literacy. MWT has partnered with the Vanuatu Mama’s English Class to improve women’s literacy in villages in Vanuatu with a goal of improving economic opportunities. With many tourists being from english speaking countries, women can take advantage of entrepreneurial activities and improve their income. When women have improved income it benefits not only her but her whole family.

MWT has partnered with Odyssey Middle School from Bainbridge Island WA to help women from Eratap village in Vanuatu build and strengthen their literacy program. Women have been learning English through the Vanuatu Mama's English Class and had the desire to have a women's community house. During the 2016-17 school year the Odyssey Middle school students raised over $2000 US Dollars and the women of Eratap were able to build a community house. 

During this current school year Odyssey students are raising funds to build a VIP toilet for women along with a washing station for better hygiene.  If you would like to donate please click the button below:
