Women from the rural communities are trained as 3 R’s facilitators. They work with the children on a daily basis, implementing the 3 R’s Programme. The majority do not have a background in education but receive on-going training given by the Anna Foundation, equipping them with skills and providing them with the support they need to successfully run the programme in the afternoons. This training includes monthly workshops as well as weekly on-site assistance from Anna Foundation project managers. In the process these women are empowered, providing sustainable support for the children within their own community.
