Mathematics training is essential as part of literacy education

Today more than ever before, people without adequate mathematics training suffer economically as well as socially. The global economical crisis has led to large scale unemployment and being in a country with millions of illiterate or only partially literate people, means that if someone does not have the basic or even advanced mathematics skills , that the person will struggle to get a job. As such it is vital to support mathematics training for your employees , whether the domestic worker, farm worker or factory worker, you will empower them through literacy and mathematics training. It may be that your company one or other time will need to retrench people. By giving them access to literacy and mathematics training and ensuring that they are better skilled to find suitable alternative employment you show that you care about the economy. Our social responsibility starts at home and at our workplaces.
