ABET healing social ills

The idea that reading, writing and arithmetic are the foundations of any educational system have been around for centuries. Without these foundations further education is impossible. In fact a lack of these skills will prevent the individual from reaching their true potential. If a country is largely illiterate it will be stuck in the third world until there is a drastic intervention. Although the rate of illiteracy in South Africa is estimated at around 8% the impact of the problem is felt on a variety of levels, both economic and social. This why the current roll out of Adult Basic education and Training programs across the country is absolutely essential.
