Literacy is key to success in all walks of life for everybody: young and old, male and female. In 2019, ADPP operated a dedicated literacy project providing literacy lessons to 6,939 farmers in Bié, Huambo and Malanje. Literate farmers can read instructions, measure fields, calculate yields, follow plans, balance costs, determine prices, agree contracts, open bank accounts and sign papers. Literacy increases self-worth, and children of literate mothers are more likely to attend school. 

ADPP also integrates literacy training in a variety of projects. In 2019, ADPP offered literacy training as part of community development projects, Farmers’ Clubs, the Sustainable Charcoal and Women in Action projects, for refugees, and ADPP trainee teachers implemented literacy micro-projects during their teaching practice. 

  • 6,939 literacy learners in three provinces in the Market-Oriented Smallholder Agriculture Project
  • 5,680 literacy learners in four provinces in the project Community Development in Inland Fishing Communities
  • 1,678 literacy learners in two provinces in Women’s Farmers’ Clubs
