Esperance Mukeshayezu and Carol Pratt meet three days a week for an hour and a half at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Portage. Mukeshayezu escaped genocide in Rwanda and Pratt, a volunteer tutor at the Kalamazoo Literacy Council, helps her improve her English skills.
On Thursday, October 29th, we held our annual event to honor our volunteers, learners, and partners. This virtual celebration featured some very special guests, recognitions, and awards!
This virtual event is for anyone who is interested in supporting adult literacy – from experienced volunteer tutors and instructors to individuals who want to learn more about how they can serve this important cause during a time of social distancing and virtual learning.
