Church launches literacy programme
Ho, Sept. 29, GNA - The Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC), Ho Assembly, with Engage Now Africa, is providing literacy education to its congregants for free for two years.
Pastor Andrews Owusu, the Resident Pastor, said in an ever changing world, communication had become a major key to success, hence the need to educate their members.
He said studies and observations showed that the English Language would be a major mode of communication in sharing the Word of God in the Church as against the use of multi-languages, which could be skewed through translation.
Mr Stephen Ansah, the Coordinator of 'Engage Now Africa', an NGO, said it was its aim to reduce poverty to the barest level in Africa.
He said the programme would help the congregants to appreciate bible studies and also help them in keeping records in their businesses.
The NGO provided starter packs of teaching and learning materials to the class, made up of 60 students and the teachers.
