Illiteracy Program

An illiteracy unit was established. The unit served women, men and children who split from schools. Children were keen to attend classes after their work while women and men couldn’t follow. The reason for men is the unstable working times and those for women are the social habits, ignorance and poverty, which in turn urges them to find an additional source of income to alleviate their conditions.
