Overcoming Obstacles Determined To Reach Their Goals

Imagine for a moment that you just moved to another country and you do not speak or understand the language. You don’t have a job, and you have very little money in your pocket. Where do you begin?

For First Literacy scholars, education is the answer and the first step towards a better life.

At First Literacy we are proud to support these brave and determined adult learners by awarding them a $1,500 scholarship to assist them in their pursuit of higher education. This year First Literacy awarded 30 scholarships to deserving individuals. Each scholar has a different inspiring story and hurdles they’ve overcome, but they all share a deep desire to improve their lives through the power of education.
