Importance of Adult Education
All of you are probably aware of the adult literacy camp we organized earlier this month. It saw the active participation of a large number of students of our school and benefitted over a hundred illiterate people in our neighbourhood. As you all know, being able to read and write is a skill we all need to possess. Unfortunately, there are still many among us who have been deprived of an opportunity to learn and cannot write even their own name. Through camps like these we can help them to learn and make a difference to their lives.
All the people who attended the camp were excited about this opportunity to learn. The literacy club of the school has already offered them some learning materials and it has also been decided to conduct these learning sessions in our school premises on every Sunday from 1.30 to 5.30. While enough students have already expressed a willingness to teach at the upcoming sessions, there are perhaps many more who want to volunteer. If you want to be a part of this mission to educate adults, you may contact the secretary of the Literary Club and register your name. If each person teaches another person, it is not hard to eradicate illiteracy. It is a shame that even in this 21st century, we have millions of people who cannot read or write. So, let’s all seize this opportunity to teach and contribute our bit.
