In school David misbehaved because he didn’t have the ability to read. Ben, a new immigrant had difficulty finding employment due to his lack of English proficiency. Maria, who didn’t graduate from high school, couldn’t help her children with homework.

Now, thanks to Salvation Army literacy programs across Canada, kids like David have a new sense of self-esteem and willingness to learn. Adults like Ben are employed. Moms like Maria are helping their kids succeed.

The Salvation Army recognizes the significance of literacy for healthy societies. As part of its ongoing mission and holistic approach to helping people, it strives to improve literacy and life skills for individuals and families, offering hope and creating change.
