The Adult Education Program
The second course of Baraka Center's Adult Education program in Feb 2014 had 65 students enrolled in three levels of study with emphasis on individual learner goals.
Mid-term (late April) exam results enabled more than a dozen women to be promoted to the next level of study.
The course ended in December 2014 with a group of student prepared to sit for their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education. Dorothy Kioko, Program Advsior, reported a highly motivated group. Major funding was provided by The Change Happens Foundation.
Continuation of the program requires new funding. Contact Susan@WomensCentersIntl.org
How the Program Works
The Adult Education Program at Baraka Center addresses the needs of members who've been unable to complete primary education. The program offer three levels of study:
Functional Literacy Levels 1 and 2 equip women with basic reading and writing skills. For many, this is an end in itself, enabling them to leave behind the shame and vulernability of illiteracy. This is literacy as self-defence.
Certificate Track, Level 3 enables women to obtain their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), an essential milestone for those wishing to pursue high school and university education.
The program will begin offering small scholarships so graduates may register for their KCPE exam and to defray the cost of tuition for secondary education at existing adult education facilities.
