When you’re born into a family of teachers and writers, the importance of education becomes engrained into your identity.
Marzieh, a refugee from Afghanistan, knew that she wanted her children to have every opportunity to achieve their educational dreams. But first, she needed to realize her own.
One year after arriving in the U. S., Marzieh enrolled in the LVCA program to improve her English and prepare to become a U. S. citizen. One-to-one tutoring, conversation classes, and citizenship classes all helped her build the skills and confidence needed to pass her naturalization test successfully. She set an example for her children to achieve their own success in education and as citizens of our country.
Your generosity allows parents like Marzieh to prioritize their education and uplift an entire generation of new Americans.
