We deeply believe that knowledge holds its true value when it is shared, and we extend our heartfelt gratitude to you for allowing us to share our wealth of knowledge with you.
We sincerely appreciate our dedicated team of volunteer teachers. These generous organizations provide us with spaces to conduct our classes, every donor member who supports our cause, and all the public and private organizations whose contributions have turned CENAES into a reality.
Thank you for being a part of this journey and helping us make a positive impact together.
Rogelia, 55 years old, El Salvador. ''I always wanted to improve my writing and reading in Spanish. I am in the 2nd level of Spanish and I also started to study English. The literacy classes at CENAES, are very important, because now I already learned about Verbs, Adjectives, Nouns, capitalization, punctuation symbols, etc. I also learned how to add and subtract. I feel like a different person and it's like I am just opening my eyes to life.... Thank you for helping me, my goal is to learn my Spanish and English language well. Thank you CENAES!".
Cesarina B. 48 years old, Dominican Republic. "My parents never let me go to school. I was the oldest of 5 siblings. Every day I helped my mom with the housework and took care of my siblings. I always told my mom that I wanted to go to school, because my friends were studying and I just stayed at home helping, that's how the years went by. My family and friends write me on my cell phone and I can't answer, it makes me very sad.... Today I want to learn to put my name and read and write".
Felipa S., 49 years old, El Salvador. 2nd level. "A friend invited me to CENAES. I have learned a lot in the 2nd level, I studied only 2 years in my country. I have forgotten many things, but now I can read and write better. 2 months ago my mom Maria has also started to study, she never went to school, she says that the teachers are very patient and she likes to study very much. We are happy to learn to read and write. After learning Spanish, I want to study English".
Vilma B. 38 years old, Guatemala. Student of the 1st level of CENAES. My husband told me that I have to learn to read and write, because my 5 year old daughter is going to need me to help her with her homework. "I have to learn fast, I already learned how to put my name and write some words. I also want to learn how to add and subtract".
