Gbullung Village have a high number of people that are not able to read and write. The majority are ladies who have been denied chance to go to school because of the traditional beliefs that education is mainly for boys. This has resulted into many women to be victims of exploitation, rural urban migrants and gender based violence.
The project will help these women to at least learn to read and write in English including their local language. Ghanaian Government is doing everything possible to put most of important materials in local language so that people have clear understanding of important issues that affects their day to day life. The organization will be working closely with the district Education unit and the Community local Library which is in charge of adult literacy for materials and education facilitators. The project will be a step stone for most of the women folk and it will help reduce the high spread of HIV and AIDS, STIs, Malaria, reduce money lending exploitation and reduce voter apathy and promote civic participation in development.
The project will among other things include simple classroom lessons and distribution of learning materials to the women and other vulnerable groups in the villages. The use of visual aid will make part of the learning process for the women to easily understand issues. The District Education Unit and the Gbullung Community Library Service will be the two most important partners that the project will work closely with in order to achieve the intended results. The project will also train the facilitators for them to effectively undertake their duties that will ultimately help the project to achieve its goals.
Currently the Library is the only library in the district but yet it lacks the basic support material to educate the communities, the project will also renovate the library and put computers and print material in the library to enable it serve as a machinery to fuel the development of literacy of the community and beyond.
