Illiteracy to drop by 30 per cent by 2012

The National Director of literacy and adult education Ernesto Muianga has announced that the illiteracy rate, currently running at 51.9 per cent, is to drop to 30 per cent by 2012.

In 2003, it was estimated that 60 per cent of the Mozambican population could not read or write. However, the Ministry of Education and Culture estimates that by the end of this year the illiteracy rate will be 43 per cent.

Reducing the illiteracy rate to below half of their population in every country is a goal established by the United Nations in its Literacy Decade in 2003, and Muianga says that Mozambique is in a position to meet this goal.
