The goal for this program is to assist women who have not had the opportunity of having
an education before and need the basic skills of reading and writing in their daily lives.
We have begun to institute these programs in some of the same villages that already
have Non-Formal Schooling as we find building a relationship with the women first
through their childrens help to open doors for the Adult Literacy Program.
The villagers are showing interest and seem to feel more motivated to participate in NFS
by sending their children to the program. The women from these villages now take time
out of their household chores and have enrolled themselves in our Adult Literacy Program.
This is a great opportunity for these women to take control of their own development and
make a difference in their own lives.
