MAFS celebrated Appreciation Day for Tutors who play a major role in our Adult Literacy Program. It was held in the Naperville location on June 30th, 2021, from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm. It was an in-person event while maintaining social distancing. The tutors were celebrated by giving certificates and awards. A special cake was cut and enjoyed by all. Dr. Kumar in her speech, mentioned “A person without knowledge is like being blind. It is very important to have a good education and good English-speaking skills to survive in this country without being a burden to society! She continued to say that we believe that Education and Knowledge help you better understand yourself and the world around you. It improves the community to get good jobs, better understanding, and confidence in a new country by breaking language barriers. To facilitate this cause, we offer our community educational and technical programs through our Adult Literacy Program which includes, English as a Second Language (ESL), Bright Ideas, CPR training, and Computer training.”
