Alfalit is a faith-based, nonprofit organization founded in 1961 by Eulalia Cook, Justo and Luisa Gonzalez.
Alfalit offers programs in literacy, basic education, early childhood development/preschool, health, nutrition, job and skills training and community development to the poorest in 24 countries throughout Africa, Latin America, Europe and the United States.
Alfalit reaches very poor and remote areas and provides high quality, cost-effective education with compassion and respect for the people Alfalit teaches.
Alfalit reaches and teaches as many students as possible, wherever they may live.
Some of Alfalit's classes are held in old shipping containers in Liberia, under a mango tree in Mozambique, and in donated spaces.
Where there is thirst for knowledge, Alfalit tries its best to deliver programs. Alfalit has been recognized by USAID as an organization committed to providing programs in the hardest-to-reach areas of post-conflict countries. Every year, Alfalit teaches more than 120,000 in 24 countries.
Alfalit provides its programs FREE OF CHARGE to all its students.
