Angola: Huambo Government Committed to Eradicating Illiteracy

Luanda — The vice governor of the central Huambo Province, Guilherme Tuluka, said Monday that the local executive has set as one of the priorities the eradication of illiteracy, with the inclusion of voluntaries, in a programme that counts on the support of the Education Ministry.

Speaking to the press, the vice governor revealed that the literacy project is based on voluntarism.

According to the official, the voluntary teacher will work with 30 students and needs to be driven by the spirit of patriotism, and it is up to the state to provide the conditions needed in this field.

Guilherme Tuluka informed that for this undertaking the province counts on 74,000 voluntary persons, with an average 30 students in the class, a project that was launched in June 2012.
