Getting the basics right

Adult Basic Education and Training is changing the face of South African society by replacing ignorance with knowledge. This is important not only because of its ramifications for business but also in its knock on effects for the wider society. An educated populace is much more likely to actively engage in nation building and much less likely to engage in activities that are detrimental to the nation as a whole, such as criminal activity. By bringing a basic knowledge of reading, writing and arithmetic to the previously disadvantaged ABET programs are changing South Africa into a better, more socially conscious country.
