Partner Spotlight:
New Hampshire Women's Foundation

NH Women’s Foundation is committed to investing in opportunities and equality for women and girls in the Granite State through research, education, advocacy, grantmaking, and philanthropy. New Hampshire Humanities is pleased to announce it has received a $5,000 grant from the NH Women’s Foundation to support our Connections adult literacy program taking place in the NH Correctional Facility for Women through June 2021.

This program augments basic literacy instruction, putting language acquisition into deeper, more meaningful context. Through language building, open-ended inquiry, exploration and discussion of universal themes in books, and response to different points of view, participants gain invaluable literacy skills (reading, writing, speaking) which help enable closer personal relationships, a deeper understanding of the humanities, and a desire for lifelong learning.

Helping maintain and reinforce family bonds through literature is critically important for the social and emotional well-being of mothers and children, and these skills also improve parenting, prepare participants for community engagement, civics education, and the life benefits of a reading culture which is critical in a society and workforce.

We thank the NH Women’s Foundation for their critical support of our work!
