Literacy and non-formal education will serve socially constructive purposes to prepare Rwandan citizens to actively participate in the process of social, cultural and economic development. Ability to read and write is seen as a necessity to access information, and above all, to walk with one’s head high and participate at local level, in the national effort of construction.
Illiteracy is a major barrier to welfare and the implementation of development policies. Compared with other community members, Historically marginalized people’s in Rwanda are far behind and less happy, mostly because they don’t have land and livestock and have to survive on casual labour, they are not educated and do not have anywhere to turn to for support other than conditional begging.
