If you cannot read or write your ambitions simply cannot be realised. In a world that is changing to one where information is the currency that will allow people to reach their true potential. Someone who is illiterate is denied access to the information available in today’s knowledge rich environment and has to allow others to translate this information into something that they can understand. By being disenfranchised in this manner the illiterate worker is forever at a disadvantage. ABET is changing that status and is also changing people’s lives across South Africa. Business and government have shown themselves to be committed to this goal through rolling out ABET programs across South Africa.
