Mission of The Tandana Foundation
Tandana’s mission is to empower individuals of various cultural backgrounds with an increased awareness of the world, other cultures, and themselves, and with an expanded sense of their possibilities; to promote positive, caring interactions between people of different backgrounds and encourage consideration and lessening of global inequalities; to promote respect and responsibility toward one's self, all people and the Earth.
Women LEAP’s purpose is to provide additional literacy and numeracy skills as well as skills in association management, democratic governance and leadership to women who previously participated in one session of Tandana’s literacy program.
Why We Love This Project
We love this project because of its appropriateness for this population; its evidence of success and because women in these communities have asked for this program.
