Wana-Komakech (The Assistant Community Development Officer in charge of Aswa County, Gulu) May14th launched Functional Adult Literacy Campaign for Bungatira sub-county, Gulu, with a call on local councils to support the programme. He said the department needs maximum support from all levels of local councils if the intending beneficiaries should learn to read and write.
They do not need much from your budget but if you buy them a packet of chalk or blackboard, you will have helped someone learn to read and write.
He promised that Gulu would celebrate the International Literacy day from Bungatira come September 8th.
The LC III chairman, Tonny Kitara, said civil society could only be strengthened if the people learnt to read, write and add figures correctly. He thanked the 121 women and one man who are undergoing the course
Programme manager for Save the Children Den mark (Gulu) Mark Avola said many illiterate people are thirsty of learning. He appealed to the community to help them out rather than killing such interests ..Ends
