Kha ri gude literacy campaign
The Kha Ri Gude Mass Literacy Campaign was launched in February 2008, with the intention of enabling 4,7 million adults above the age of 15 years to become literate and numerate in one of the eleven official languages. Initiated and managed by the Department of Education, Kha Ri Gude delivers across all nine provinces in a massive logistical outreach. The Campaign enables adult learners to read, write and calculate in their mother tongue in line with the Unit Standards for ABET level 1, and also to learn spoken English. The specifically designed Campaign materials teach reading, writing and numeracy and integrates themes and lifeskills such as health, gender, the environment and civic education. These materials have been adapted for use in Braille in eleven languages, and for use by the deaf.
Kha Ri Gude is available at no cost to adults who have little or no education. Learners are required to commit themselves to attending classes for 240 hours. To ensure that learners fulfil this commitment, classes and are held in communities, at times which are convenient to the learners, and take place in homes, churches, community centres prisons etc. These learning groups play a significant role in community social cohesion.
