Engage Now Africa on Saturday, February 8 graduated 119 learners from their adult literacy project in Bibiani

The graduating learners were drawn from Bibiani, Asawinso, Nzema Nkwanta and Nambro in the Bibiani Anwiaso Bekwai Municipal Assembly of the Western North Region.

The graduates had gone through about 18 months of Functional literacy and vocational skills. They were trained on liquid soap, hair food, talcum powder, washing bleach and antiseptic production.

The short but colorful ceremony, witnessed testimonies from some graduates on the impact the adult literacy and livelihood skills development project has had on them.

Chairing the ceremony was Mr. Samuel Mensah, the Regional Non-Formal Education Division director.

He encouraged the learners to put to good use the vocational skills they have acquired to generate income to help support their families. He thanked Engage Now Africa for the immense support towards reducing illiteracy in Ghana. He said that, through their collaborative efforts with the Government, they can be able to reach out to as many deprived communities as projected.

Mrs. Cecilia Amankwah, the country director of Engage Now Africa also added her voice and encouraged the learners to continue reading even after their graduation. She urged them to make sure the knowledge acquired translates in their daily endeavours especially their businesses.

Alma House sponsored the skills development training for the learners. The organization headed by Madam Charles Ada is in partnership with Engage Now Africa to help develop these learners across the country.
