Commission for Mass Literacy

The workshop is organized by the Commission for Mass Literacy, Non-Formal Adult Education (NMEC) and the Non-Governmental Association of Literacy Support Services (NOGALSS) in collaboration with the UNESCO Regional Office in Abuja.

Priso said that the modules would be validated and also shared among interested parties.

Institute for Lifelong Learning

” It is important to inform us that the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) has fulfilled its promise to support this GAL/GEC initiative with an initial start-up grant of USD 20,000 which is now domiciled at the UNESCO regional office, Abuja. .

UNESCO Regional Office

“We haven’t spent a penny from the fund, not because we don’t need it; no, far from it. It is so because the country, with the UNESCO Regional Office, has demonstrated a proven commitment to the initial processes of the initiative.

” The 20,000 USD will be used for the pilot training of literacy teachers, hopefully in December of this year. A contract will be established with NMEC/NOGALSS for the utilization of the fund for pilot training in December 2022,” he said.

NMEC Executive Secretary Prof

Furthermore, NMEC Executive Secretary Prof. Simon Akpama praised the initiative saying it would help build the capacities of around 10,000 youth and adult literacy facilitators when the initiative goes into full cycle.

Akpama said that it was necessary to harness and optimize the potential of literacy educators to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

“Today marks another milestone in the cycle of the initiative, as we come together to validate the contextualized training modules, making it a suitable document for use in Nigeria.

“This will hopefully improve the digital competencies of our literacy educators for teaching and communication.

In fact, the diverse needs of our literacy educators would be auspiciously met if our literacy educators would take full advantage of and optimize this vast opportunity graciously provided by GAL.

“The capacities of 10,000 youth and adult literacy facilitators are expected to have improved when the initiative enters full cycle and is boldly implemented,” he said.

National President Mr

In the same vein, NOLGALSS National President Mr. Noah Emmanuel praised the stakeholders for the efforts to ensure the initiative to make the country a literate nation is achieved.

“We are confident that this global initiative will be very successful in Nigeria as everyone is ready for the successful implementation of the project.

“To our Hamburg UIL representatives, we hope that when this workshop is successfully completed, you will leave Nigeria with good memories,” he said.
