Women's Empowerment

Through functional literacy, communities and women in particular have been empowered with knowledgde and skills that enables them to make their own decisions including protection of their sexual and reproductive rights



After years of adult literacy learning, it is imperative to promote the post literacy phase within communities as a vital approach in sustaining the desired attitudinal changes, literate environments, and a society of independent learners and participants in the country's socio-economic, developmental, and political affairs.

At present, BAFROW has constructed a multi-purpose adult learning library which proposes to ultimately house all adult learning materials available, and create room for research and references. The Library will be the first step to ensuring complete access to all forms of adult learning materials to individuals, literacy providers, literacy participants and institutions.

Despite major achievements in the campaign against harmful traditional practices, FGMC continues to survive in households and in many communities. Among others, primal reasons for the continuity of the practice are attributed to the lack of appropriate and relevant information for the various groups in our society.

 The library therefore, accommodates an exclusive FGMC research and documentation corner which makes  available diverse information materials on FGMC, other harmful traditional practices including child exploitation  issues.

 The centre has been upgraded with two computers which enable the librarian and other users to download first  hand information from the stopfgmc webportal and browse other related sites for information the internet.
