Gertrude’s Literacy Class
February Gertrude lead another Literacy course for the three language groups, the Notsi, and two other languages close by, Nalik and Notsi-Mandak. It was a two week teacher training course to provide training for leaders from different villages to be able to start an adult literacy class. Often people will know how to read English or Tok Pisin (the national trade language) but they struggle reading in their own language. This course with its materials helps them bridge the gap to be able to develop reading fluency in their own language.
