Providing Literacy and Community programs to prepare the Dallas/Fort Worth families to improve the quality of their lives, enables them to contribute economically and culturally to their diverse communities and become productive members of society

We all know that additional support for education becomes more relevant when is directed to sectors of the population that most need it, in our case:  The The illiterate Hispanic population in the Dallas/Fort Worth area keeps on growing disproportionally, representing a challenge to the progress of this Country, so we need to act fast! Let me share some statistics as per last census:

  • 7.3% of the 240,373 population of Irving, TX, are persons 65 years and over. 

  • It is estimated that 41.3% of the whole population in Irving are Hispanic/Latino persons– so roughly there must be an estimated 5,000 persons of 50 years and over. 

A good percentage of them have not reached naturalization yet, and have only remained as legal residents. 

support for education is intrinsically relevant because education is the vehicle of progress of promotion and development of any society in the world.

"You will be helping other people in need. For some, you will be making a direct difference in their lives forever. We benefit so greatly from our positive influence."
