The vice mayor for social affairs in Gicumbi district, Therese Mujawamariya has remarked that fighting illiteracy is opening the gates to residents’ sustainable development.
Mujawamariya revealed this on November 28th 2012 during the meeting to devise modern techniques in teaching the elderly how to read, write and count.
Julienne Uwamahoro in charge of education explains that adult education in this area has not been done in a disorganized manner without supervision to know which level this group or that has reached.
Uwamahoro highlights that general supervision of teaching guides will ensure improved teaching system.
“General supervision will ensure that adults study well, do same exams in Gicumbi district and know the level of understanding they have attained.
This will be beneficial to the adults who have learnt how to read, write and count and to the development of the district at large.
This is because after fighting illiteracy, residents will do different projects and develop socially and economically.
