The illiterate population in the Wafi-Golpu region in Morobe Province will now have the chance to learn to read and write.
Fifteen locals from the area recently completed a three-week course on Adult Literacy & Numeracy Teacher Training at Timini Village.
These locals now have skills necessary to pass on the vital knowledge to their communities. This was the first ‘Teacher Training’ under Morobe Mining’s Adult Literacy & Numeracy Program.
The trainees came from Timini, Dengea, Hekeng, Venembeli, Pekumbe, Pokwaluma, Pokwana, Zilani and Mazim villages.
Trainer Maggie Kua Dingi said the course also taught the trainees how to bring changes in attitudes, knowledge and skills.
Mrs Dingi challenged the community to support these trainees so they can impart what they’ve learnt to you,” she said.
Morobe Mining’s Regional & Economic Development Manager, Reuben Aila challenged the teachers to push on with the training programs in their communities.
The teachers are expected to plan and run their training programs with the support of the Provincial Education Office, Local Level Government and Morobe Mining.
