Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.
Do not say to your neighbor, 'Go, and come again, tomorrow I will give it' -

Although literacy rates have increased, Suriname is still marked by striking disparities. The EFA Global Monitoring Report of 2008 indicates that while the adult literacy rate for Latin America is 91 per cent, it is 74 per cent in the Caribbean.

This means that nearly 39 million adults in the region lack the reading and writing skills necessary to meet the demands of daily life and work, and to facilitate continuous learning in today’s knowledge societies.

It is our desire to reach out to the poor in a way that demonstrates God’s love while empowering the needy to free themselves from poverty.

By impacting the mothers the children will be affected and part of the Women's Empowerment Sponsorship Program will allow the mothers to bring a child once a week to the After School Child Feeding Club, called a PowerClub.
