At last year’s event, a recent Project Read graduate Ariunsanaa “Anna” Baasanbyamba shared the story of how she, an unemployed, single mother of two young children, was empowered through literacy.

After ten months of working with an individual tutor and attending weekly tutoring and writing labs, Baasanbyamba’s reading and language skills improved more than two grade levels, and she was able to graduate from Project Read’s program.

Since graduating from Project Read, Baasanbyamba has been able to get a job to support her young family and recently launched her own nonprofit organization. She plans to continue studying and hopes to be accepted at Brigham Young University.

In operation since 1984, Project Read provides one-on-one tutoring for functionally illiterate adults in Utah County and changes lives through literacy by empowering individuals, strengthening families, and building community.
