Chantel is celebrating passing the GED! At 19, Chantel has taken steps to learn and grow in order to move into the adult world of self-sufficiency. Your assistance made this step possible for Chantel. The GED exam is taken on a computer. The cost for that exam in total is about $150.00, and Chantel did not have the money. Oklahoma City Metro Literacy Coalition has a GED exam fee fund. Money well spent! Over the last few years, your donations have helped many people like Chantel.
