We are a very unique organization and you won’t find many similar ones because our mission is to promote Adult Literacy efforts. The main reason for this is very simple, there are a lot of people around the world who are not able to read or write in their native language and that is becoming a bigger and bigger problem every year. Not having the ability to read or write is something nobody should be proud, every person in this world should be taught these skills early on in their life. Our organization isn’t powerful enough to help every person in the world, but we are doing our best to promote literacy here in Georgia. If you are not able to use your native language to its full potential, then you are missing out on a big one. No matter where life takes you, knowing how to read and write will be extremely helpful.
Components of adult literacy
Here are some of the essential components that you will need as an adult to learn and improve your literacy skills very easily.
Our organization is constantly looking for new and better ways to promote literacy, especially with adults. One of the great ways we try to help these people is by supporting the communities in Georgia to promote adult literacy. The goal we have is to turn entire communities and show them the importance of learning and improving literacy skills. These are the skills everyone should have in life because you cannot function properly in the today’s society without them.
