A good cause for a good cause

The Adult Literacy Centre in Eldoret last week received text books from the Family Strengthening Programme (FSP) in Eldoret. More than 100 text books were handed to the tutor at the facility, Ms Sarah Omwoyo by the family strengthening representatives, Ms. Getrude Olima and Reuben Wachira as part of the ongoing effort of community capacity building.

The donation was in response to an assessment conducted by the FSP which showed that there were quiet a large number of the community members with no basic education. The books will help in training and equipping the learners with basic writing skills and reading skills that can strengthen their competency in assisting their children with homework and perform simple calculations.

Sarah, while receiving the books, expressed her appreciation noting that the gesture was for a good cause for a good cause. The text books donated were for English, Kiswahili and Maths.

Due to the great demand of basic education among the community, the centre conducts 5 adult literacy training sessions in a week.
