Functional Literacy

One of the objectives of ASEED is to support formal and non-formal education for women and girls through enhancing inclusive education communities and functional literacy programs. The expected outcomes include increasing the number of women who have functional literacy and numeracy skills, and who are using them to generate income, engage in decision-making, improve their health, and support girls in education. All these will lead to better living standards and general community development. Interventions to succeed in this objective include: + Working in close collaboration with the Regional Delegation of Basic Education for the implementation of its programs and strategies. + Training and supporting community level functional literacy trainers to enhance the literacy skills of local women + Supporting these communities with the experts that will meet their needs at any point in time. + Using teaching methods that are modern and learner centered and which are appropriate for an adult audience.
