Concerned African Women, Inc. believes that literacy, the fundamental skills of "reading and writing," are pre-requisites for life success.  We affirm total literacy is the only approach to addressing the interrelated challenges of young people living in highly challenged environments. By working hand in hand with parents, schools and community-based organizations, New Dimensions in Community Education fosters total literacy by focusing on the total environment which encompass  family, school and community.
