Alphabétisation: la clé du monde moderne

ROKPA finance des cours d’alphabétisation pour les jeunes adultes afin que les personnes ayant un accès limité l’éducation aient la possibilité de se faire une place dans le monde du travail moderne.

L’alphabétisation constitue un instrument permettant de casser le cercle vicieux de l’ignorance, de la pauvreté, de la faim, de la maladie et de la mortalité infantile. De nombreux jeunes, majoritairement issus de familles de nomades, ne sont jamais allés à l’école de leur vie. C’est pourquoi ROKPA finance des cours dans lesquels ils apprennent à lire et à écrire.

For economic reasons, nomadic peoples are increasingly attracted to the surrounding cities. Since many of them can neither read nor write, it is difficult or impossible to find a job in the urban regions. With its literacy project, ROKPA significantly improves their labor market opportunities. 50 pupils aged between 16 and 33 are trained each year.

Teachers report that the students are very motivated. "I have had the experience that older students are very curious and eager to learn. They know that mastering the language is the key to success", a teacher reports. With monthly tests the school ensures the learning progress.

Those who take part in the literacy project perceive this as a privilege. "I was not allowed to stay at my former school because I was too old. When I took my education here, I realized how good the teachers are. I learn much faster than before. It is my wish to become a good teacher myself. I hope one day to help many people who have a similar background like me", a 22-year-old student said.
