Literacy Classes Help to Abolish Poverty at Zakpota Epicenter

Benin Clementine

“I am Clémentine and I quit school a year and a half ago. My motivation to take the literacy class lies in my desire to improve my life skills and to share them with my community. For example, Zakpota faces a high rate of unplanned pregnancies and dropouts from school. This impedes girls and their community in efforts to abolish poverty.

Through literacy classes I am not only learning to read and write but I am also made aware of reproductive health that I can readily share with my peers. That gives me the feeling of contributing a very useful life skill to my community.

I am very proud because I am no longer exposed to the consequences of unplanned pregnancies and I would like to do more to spread this knowledge.”
