One of our most misunderstood projects is our witch doctor school.
We are teaching traditional healers and witch doctors how to read and write, to help them learn skills that will allow them to switch to other jobs and stop practicing healing. Typically, they are both feared and respected in their communities, isolating them from the rest. Most have never had any education, and don't know how to read or write, so it's hard for them to find jobs. Unfortunately, many cases of child sacrifice happen with the help of witch doctors, so our goals is to teach them other skills and also, make sure they know the laws against trafficking or sacrificing children.
We've already seen the witch doctors make awesome progress and they are even starting to report crimes!
