ST. VINCENT de PAUL Literacy Workshop

Madrid, Spain

Literacy Education Project


Madrid, Spain is the home to many migrants from many countries around the world with limited to no local language skills. The St. Vincent de Paul Society in Madrid aims to improve the ability of these individuals to integrate into Spanish society by running language workshops for migrants. The lack of language skills can lead to social isolation, and limitations in opportunities in a new land.


St. Vincent de Paul's current program schools 25 people, mostly women on a twice weekly basis.  The program requires some basic items to improve the quality of education taught. DBL has agreed to provide the program with the following; learning materials, bookcases and shelving for the classroom and financial support for transportation requirements of the students for the 9 month program.
