Rotarians Support Feed and Read

Rotarians in Yola, Nigeria, have pitched in to support the literacy program for out of school children.  But while the vast majority of students are indeed children, a few adults have also graduated from the program.  They tend to be parents of children and they study together.  It’s common that adults in this part of Nigeria cannot read and write in Hausa, the predominate language here.  In the photo below, the father is a Mallam, or Koranic scholar.  He knows Arabic, but not Hausa or English, which AUN teaches after a basic level of literacy is attained in Hausa.
