The already low literacy rates are declining in the south at a rapid rate. Some families can not financially afford to send their children to school, and others need them to look after the home or care for the animals.
We have started a five-month long literacy programme for students of all ages and abilities. The Literacy Programme is a great opportunity for discipling the students in their faith, or introducing them to Christianity, as not everyone in the classes know God. Every lesson begins and ends with prayer and by the second month the students begin reading the Bible to practice their skills.
