The numbers of Adult Basic Education and Training centres in South Africa are expanding at a rapid rate. This is due not only to the high amount of illiterate or uneducated people in South Africa but also to the growing realisation of how important education is by individuals and big business alike. It is imperative that every person in South Africa be educated or become involved in the education of a fellow countryman. Although the illiteracy rate is steadily declining, it is fact that our education system is failing many new learners and that they may one day need the support of an Adult Education and Training Programme. Make sure that you are doing your bit to make South Africa and all its’ people achieve the best potential that they are able to.
