Debating the issues...

Literacy class
Literacy class

The opportunity to read and write is one the most critical and transformative opportunities we provide. Most of our clients missed out on the opportunity when they were young due to the ongoing conflict. This year we were able to offer two levels of literacy classes, providing participants the opportunity to further study. 

Our 2013 class is coming to a close, with classes beginning again in February 2014. This year our literacy students are planning to host a debate on 'educating girls' and the value of education for women. This debate will offer the community a chance to learn about our program and the the issues surrounding literacy and education for women. In addition, this is a unique event, created by WGEF clients, enabling them to use their skills, build confindence and work together to address inequality in the educational system. 

"Other than improving my economic status, through the literacy program I learnt how to read and write, the event also made me discover my talents in drama and the other performances which made me very happy and in the end my health was also improved."  - WGEF client

To date WGEF has provided over 600 women literacy training. This training enables women to create a brighter, more secure futures for themselves and their families. When a woman learns to read and write her life changes and possibilities are created.
