Heather Marie Hinze, The Literacy Program

A black and white picture captures a young woman sitting with a group of girls, whom appear to be coloring and drawing.

Haiti’s average literacy rate is estimated at 61% meanwhile the average for developing countries in Latin America and the Caribbean is at 92%, a gaping 31% difference. Heather Marie Hinze is working out of Cite Soleil, Port au Prince, Haiti, the largest slum in the Western Hemisphere and one of the most dangerous in the world to start The Literacy Program. With a seed grant, children at the Centre d’ Education et de Formation des Jeunes will be provided with a small library of books.

Date grant awarded: October 15, 2016
