We open new doors and widen horizons for almost 1000 young adults every year. Learning to read and write and acquiring numeracy skills boost the self-esteem of our learners and provide important new proficiencies. Literacy brings a greater sense of personal dignity and additional skills relevant to problem-solving.
Our learners discover that they can start running their own business, can open bank accounts and manage their money intelligently. They become aware that there is a future for themselves and their families.
Training local facilitators is a hallmark of our literacy programme. Our experience reveals that facilitators from the same cultural and ecological background as non-literates are very successful in carrying out literacy programmes.
We also create job opportunities by providing basic skills-training that enable attendees to succeed on a professional basis because they usually become self-employed.
