My visit helped me understand some of the social and literacy needs and issues that women in Varanasi face, while also exposing me to the efficient and effective programming that WLC offers. The professionalism and genuine commitment to the cause of poverty reduction through literacy and skills training, and the vast experience and expertise that WLC staff possess is remarkable.

Megan Noah“It has been over seven years since I worked for World literacy of Canada and I still feel deeply attached to WLC and the work it does in India. The women and children in WLC’s projects in India benefit greatly from WLC’s in-depth understanding of the region and the needs of the people in the communities where it works.”

Peter Weinstein“During my time there I had the great fortune to visit one of the dozens of villages that will be served by the TRM project. About 100 villagers came to the impromptu meeting organized by the TRM trainers. I was impressed by how much the village women are committed to bettering their skills and economic situation, if they only had the right support. I highly encourage WLC partners and supporters to visit this project in addition to help fund the work. I can’t wait the return!”
