Adult Leaners normally sit for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) at the end of year which guarantees them entry to secondary school and other tertiary institutions. Two teachers facilitate the centre. Some of the learners have never been to school so there are always sensitivity issues that need to be accommodated. In collaboration with social workers provide some guidance counselling, home visits, to assist those who may need a little extra help throughout the year.
The people of Mukuru continue to benefit from the program as many of them can now acquire basic literacy / numeracy at no cost and at their own pace. The Adult Education program is a great program and as the stigma decreases, more and more adults from the slums are reaping the benefits.
