Children Enjoy Literacy Classes

December 19, 2023

A full classroom of kids holding up the schoolwork they did.

Half the population of kids in Ngassa Village do not attend school. Some boys are enrolled in Koranic schools under the tutelage of a Mallam, who teaches them how to read the Quran and learn the Arabic language. The Transformational Community Development (TCD) workers decided to start a literacy school in the village after several months of advocacy with parents on the need for children to get a basic Education. The children got wooden slates and wrote with chalk. Finding the classes a worthwhile and novel experience, the children, including Hanatu (a female child), attend the literacy class three times a week with great enthusiasm and joy. The TCD workers are hopeful that the literacy center will serve as an impetus for the establishment of a primary school so that Ngassa children will have the opportunity to enjoy their right to be educated.

Thank you!
