Welcome to the website for Lasca Literacy! Our mission is to provide children in Haiti not only with access to engaging stories, but also the chance to tell their own. We’re currently reaching 3 schools in Lascahobas, Haiti, and we hope to expand to more throughout the country in the near future.
We see technology as a tool for reading, writing, and sharing books. We enable schools with solar power, digital libraries with locally-relevant books, teacher training, and curriculum. Our current model allows us to reach 10 students with each computer.
We are currently in the process of registering as a nonprofit 501(c)3. Our work has already received recognition from Big Ideas @ Berkeley and the All Children Reading – Enabling Writers competition.
