Lewa’s Adult Literacy Programme provides literacy and livelihood skills training for community members for basic literacy and numeracy and life skills. Lewa trains community members on reading and writing, basic finance, home economics, healthcare, business skills, and management of natural resources. Others include income generating activities for example, poultry rearing, soap making, bakery, tailoring and organic farming.
Lewa’s Adult Learning Centres also form savings groups that allow women to pool resources to save for household items and investments in education for their children. Opportunities in Lewa’s Adult Literacy Programme build marketable skills that increase participants’ access to income opportunities, while promoting financial literacy and conservation education.
The programme is currently implemented by four instructors across twelve learning facilities, serving more than 400 adult learners annually from diverse cultural backgrounds.
