Activities

Our activities fall under six major categories. Our overall goal is capacity building, or providing people opportunities to gain confidence and play an active role in decision-making processes. This strategy ensures that projects have a lasting impact and remain sustainable long after the end of our direct involvement in an area. Adult literacy is an effective pathway to building that capacity. As a result, adult literacy classes are the starting point for much of what we do. Literate adults are more prepared to aid in their children’s quality education, which we support by introducing quality education through multilingual education in primary schools. Groups formed in non-formal education classes work together to improve their lives and the situation of their community through improving livelihoods and community development. We provide training to teachers and facilitators, so that they can implement these programs. Advocacy and networking are also part of our role in order to share experiences and learn from others. In addition, literate adults are more prepared to aid in their children’s education, which we support by introducing mother tongue-based multilingual education (MLE) in primary schools.
