So far in 2018 AIL has run 7 Mobile Literacy Classes for 245 women. These classes are popular with rural women who have limited time to devote to education and often have travel issues affecting their ability to get to a center. The 4 month long courses finished at the end of July. The students remain enthusiastic about learning and are able to use their new found literacy skills in daily life. At the end of the courses, 229 students ended up reading at 4th grade level and 16 at 3rd grade. The percentage of students reaching 4th grade has gone up to 93%, a remarkable result!
Here is one student’s story from month 3 of the course:"I am learning reading and writing in the Mobile Literacy Class. Before coming to this class, I could not read or write. I have 2 children and they are both in school. When they had problems with their homework they would come to me for help but I could not help them and this was painful for me. This prompted me to join the Mobile Literacy Class. After 3 months I was able to help my children as I could read and write. Our teacher taught us how to use a mobile phone and how to write messages, how to send a message to another individual and other aspects of the mobile phone. I would love to participate in other AIL courses and classes moreover, I would like to participate in school.”
