The Child Aid Rushinga project is continuing with its Adult Literacy Education program in Rushinga with several women having enrolled in the course.

The project which is being supported by the Ministry of Education Sport and Culture is a key component to development of any community.

Child Aid Rushinga project leader Christine Makaro noted a positive difference in families where the adults can read and write saying “Families with a high literacy rate have shown a greater understanding of other pertinent issues such as Health education especially in HIV prevention”

She added that although there was a bit of hesitation at the start of the programme the project has recorded a upward rise in enrolment with 20 adults having registered so far.

She said the project is targetting women as some of them would have dropped out of school at early ages.

The objectives of the campaign is to empower formerly illiterate adults with education that will afford them the opportunity to fulfill their potential and effectively participate in decision making and other development objectives.

Zimbabwe is currently working towards improving the adult literacy levels to 98,5% by 2015.
