Welcome to Living Wages

Living Wages is a community based, non-profit organization that provides adult education in Southeast Washington, DC.

“Education is an indispensable strategic instrument for sustainable human development. It is a tool. But it is also the right of every person – the right to become an active and creative citizen. Lastly, learning is a joy: in it each person may discover a sense of freedom, self-realization and independence. Once experienced, the joy of learning can never be forgotten, it repeats and returns throughout a lifetime; and it is inexhaustible.”

-- Federico Mayor, Director General of UNESCO
At the Fifth International Conference on Adult Education, Hamburg, July 1997
