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.
The real cost of providing effective instruction for one student for one year is TT$600. This includes training and equipping the teacher, providing materials for the students, advertising so students know about the classes, guidance from ALTA for the class teachers, administration and record keeping.
You can sponsor an ALTA student for one term ($200 TTD) or one academic year ($600 TTD).
