According to the National Director of Adult Education, Evaristo Pedro, who was speaking to ANGOP, the project, of national scope, aims to create conditions so that each household where there is an illiterate person can be helped or introduced into the world of literacy, by means of one of their relatives or a neighbour, who has at least Grade 6.

The strategy is to involve the Teachers Union, Student Association, so that in schools and around the communities the poles where the future alphabetizers will receive information and guidance can be constituted so that at home literacy can be done.

It is hoped that, at the end of this process, he said, when the pre-defined objectives are met, this literate person will be able to apply for the exam in the nearest school, where he/she will be affiliated, and if he/she approves he/she should receive a declaration equivalent to grade 2.

Data from the MED indicate that, in 2019, the literacy process counted on 85,300 students enrolled in adult education.

Regarding literacy and multilingualism, 120 pupils were enrolled, 95 of whom are women.
