Although March was a busy month for the women doing Adult Literacy training, but what they learned through the training has been far more rewarding.
The Adult Literacy Training has a huge impact on the women who come from different villages. For most women, it was the first ever experience of going out of their village and coming to PEP for training. They were very nervous on their first day of training, and many were only holding a pencil for the first time. However seeing this scenario did not let the trainers down, but with constant encouragement the trainers were helping women to speak, read, and write. The first day of the training began with a group of women who had no idea what they could learn, but the last day of the training there were women who were proudly showing copies of their writing to each other, and sharing much about their experience about the overall Adult Literacy Training.
Speaking their heart out
What does the future of Adult Literacy Education hold for the women of rural Sindh?
The Female Adult Literacy education is like raining opportunity for women in rural Sindh. This is a raining opportunity because women will have long term benefits of education. In many villages, women are still considered as weaker gender who don't not have equal rights as men do, but through the Adult Literacy Education, the women will have their own understanding and knowledge which will open up a way to have their own opinions, and voice. They will have respect, their own identity, and their own position.
