"Maya" was 31 when she moved to the United States from the Ivory Coast. As with most girls in her country, she was sent to be a housekeeper and denied a formal education. Twenty-five years later, she is a successful small business owner who desperately wants to learn to read and write. She came to Greater Waukesha Literacy last December and was matched with a terrific volunteer tutor. For three months, they made real progress. Then tragedy struck -- her tutor was diagnosed with advanced stage cancer. So now, Maya is back on the waiting list, hoping to be matched with another volunteer soon.
