We will walk and run in solidarity with all the market women and peasant farmers in Limonade who, like Polidor, are struggling to become literate.
At Carnival time, participants in our literacy program undertake a cross country walk. They celebrate literacy, recruit more learners, and dance and sing through rural communities. Ours will be a companion event to help raise funds for basic class supplies and teacher stipends.
ALFA, an extensive adult literacy program, is a project of Friends of Haiti at St. Bartholomew Parish, in partnership with the parishes of St. Ann & St. Isadore in Limonade. This year, we celebrate 17 years of literacy in Limonade Haiti and beyond.

After the run/walk, we invite all participants and volunteers to join us for Creole rice & beans, other delicious Haitian foods, and dancing to Haitian konpa!
