758 million individuals across the globe are illiterate.

Through the help of our donors and volunteers, we are on a mission to change that.

Donate

With just $14 dollars a month, you could help someone learn to read & write.

Volunteer

Alfalit International values and depends on volunteers to help enable our cause.

Change a life

Alfalit’s programs help enable families to build a better future for themselves.

As COVID-19 continues to impact all of our lives, please know that Alfalit is in regular contact with the affiliate staff in the countries we serve. While much programming has been disrupted, we are doing what we can to assist students, teachers, volunteers, and staff. Some of our staff and teachers overseas are working to bring virtual lessons to their students where possible–but resources are limited. Price inflation in many of our overseas programs means less access to food and medicine for our students. Alfalit has always and will continue to put God and safety first. Please join us in our daily prayers during this time and consider making a donation to support the health and well being of our students and staff. Thank you and God Bless.

We help the poorest in 15 countries

122 million children across the globe are illiterate

Alfalit International provides literacy and educational programs to the poorest and neediest populations around the world. Thanks to the support of our donors and volunteers, Alfalit International has helped over 8 million people to learn to read and write, in their own language, through our life-changing programs.
