The Department of Education is Addressing SA’s Needs

There are over 3.3 million South African adults who are unable to read or write. With the role out of the Adult Basic Education and Training programme throughout the country, the Department of Education has put its’ backing behind learning centres that are being housed in community centres. It also launched the South African National Literacy Initiative which is based on volunteers offering their services in the training centres so that more of the illiterate population can be reached. The various training centres and volunteers acting as facilitators in the centres must be registered with the Department of Education before they can begin offering services to a community.
