This project feed the Minds 250 Women in Nyimba, will give chance to women and young ladies, learn how to read and write and also help them reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and agro dealer exploitation
The area has high HIV/AIDS prevalence in Nyimba . Most of the IEC materials distributed to members of the community are not put into good use as most people especially women are not able to read and write even in their own local language. This makes women to remain vulnerable to HIV/AIDS as they lack reference materials to enable them understand issues of development and are taken advantage by agro-investors that usually distribute agro-inputs in their villages and made them to sign thumb print
This project will be an eye opener to the learners and will help improve development in the rural areas as women will no longer be marginalized and exploited, and issues of gender based violence will ultimately reduce as women will learn their rights
The project will educate 250 women allowing them to read and write in line with the Millennium Development Goals on education that strongly emphasis on education for all. Nyimba and Eastern Province of Zambia in particularly has high illiteracy
