Family Literacy Centers

Literacy is the foundation of self-reliance.  For many African adults, education was interrupted due to lack of funds or family responsibilities.



FMF currently operates over 200 Family Literacy Centers in Africa.  Literacy Centers currently serve over 21,500 adults and children. 

Literacy Centers are available to communities at no charge.  Most are staffed by local volunteers.  Most of the books, games, and other materials have been donated.  Local materials are purchased to  stimulate the economy.

We require each community to donate a location.  FMF makes minor improvements, ie. windows and screens, bookshelves, fans, electricity, paint, tile, banners, stools, chairs, mats, laptops, printers, Internet, and basic office supplies, etc.

We rely on generous donations from our world-wide sponsors to set up new literacy centers (approx. $3000/per LC), as well as monetary and physical help from the local communities.

Literacy Center Locations


FMF currently has a waiting list for new literacy centers of over 50. These are communities who have already met our requirements and are patiently waiting for light and knowledge for their children. Would you be willing to help us bring education to these families? Join us by donating any amount to bring literacy to these communities.
