Eradicating Poverty Youth and Adult Literacy Project

Blog Posted:4/28/2014 11:14:00 PM
Eradicating Poverty is a Non-Profit Faith Based Organization founded by yours truly, Ms. Verlena S. Walker on August 19, 2007 to assist in youth and adult literacy.  Today, this Non-Profit Faith Based Organization is doing projects in youth and adult literacy via creativity in writing.  

As you all know, Verlena is a writer of Poetry Therapy and asking Soupers to help her in this project. She wants to raise $35,000.00 by December 31, 2014 to enable her to establish this project in early January 2015. This project locale will be the Mississippi Delta.

This project is to provide mental support for victims of trauma, domestic violence, homelessness, child abuse, grief and bereavement, bullying, etc.  If you are for the betterment of youth and adults through literacy, you can submit your donations via Ms. Walker's paypal account at verlenaswalker@yahoo.com.

Thanks, in advance, for your support.  

With integrity and amour-proper, I close this 29th day of April 2014.

Debbie, I am in the humble beginnings of structuring this project. As I have advised, I want this project to take face in my school and via adult education in early 2015. Therefore, I have started to fundraised to make sure I am well equipped to fulfill my mission and vision. I appreciate your inquiry. Pray for the best! Love and Hugs... Verlena :0))s.
