Adult education program
The project aims to close the gap between the present generation of children, that have the opportunity to go to school, and the generation that never or only very sketchy could attend school. The cause of illiteracy among adult Massai is because the traditional cultures and values exist and permit not much education chances, also the nomadic Massai presupposed no school education and therefore there was no need for a school visit.
Without the adult education program it is very difficult for a large group of people to participate in the changing society.
To allow access to the adult school for men and women, classes are held in available rooms in the villages.
It is important to us that there is no "adult school building" in a certain village somewhere, where the adults have to go to for their classes and leave their homes. We want the adults to be able to follow their daily businesses such as looking after the children and animals, cooking, fetching water and firewood, ... and for 2-3 hours per day they come to a room within their village to go to classes, later on they can go back home to follow their work again. Therefore, the adult school is moving from one village to the next after a certain time.
At Naretoi adult education program we do not aim for the adults to have a graduation comparable to KCPE, we want the people to be able to read and write and calculate on a basis that has taken them out of illiteracy, is helpful for their daily live and is a basis for personal development. Though if a person really wants to go back to a public school to sit for KCPE, the Naretoi adult education program helps to get a certain level of education, which is enough to attend primary school.
