The illiteracy rate in Gbawe is estimated 25 % in the adult generation. Many adults live in low-income households and did not have the possibility to pursue their studies. This stops adults from getting jobs and managing basic administrative tasks. These handicaps undermine their autonomy and minimize their chances of social and professional improvement.
PAAJAF Foundation wants to re-launch this specific project aimed to teach illiterate adults how to read and write both in Ghanaian and in a basic level of English. In addition, basic math functions are in the curriculum.
Adults will gain confidence in their own capacities and will be able to gather information and seize opportunities in their environment. Broadly, this program strives to provide the knowledge that can improve people's social conditions, as well as change attitudes, increase self-esteem, and inclusiveness.
