LITERACY campaign aims to promote adult literacy levels across Myanmar as more than three million people in the country get no education, said an activist of local organization.
Funded by the Union government, the nation-wide campaign has begun since 2013 to broaden the horizons of national brethren and help overcome challenges.
Under the programme, volunteers will carry
out eradication of illiteracy across Kayah State in eastern Myanmar this year by
teaching special courses to residents who have never been to school.
Local authorities put concerted efforts to reduce illiteracy rate in the region by offering school facilities including text books and exercise books free of charge, providing technical assistance to campaigners in target areas and helping out-of-school children to join non-formal education programmes.
Among over 7,000 million total world populations, there are 800 million people with no education, according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
