Literacy classes give adults a second chance to learn
The International Cocoa Initiative set up literacy and numeracy classes in Ghana with the support of the Non-Formal Education Secretariat as part of the Community Development Programme in 2016. It aimed to ensure that community members like Eunice from Mpaem, Mary from Abease and Aishiatu from Yawboadi were able to read, write and carry out simple calculations together with 249 other beneficiaries. Most of these men and women never attended school or had to stop along the way due to lack of support.
