Farmers' Functional Literacy Project under the Programme of Farmers' Training and Functional Literacy.
Ministry of Education and Social Welfare, New Delhi (India).
A description is presented of the Farmers' Functional Literacy Project, a component of the integrated program of Farmers' Training and Functional Literacy. The project consisted of three regional workshops and a national workshop. The regional workshops were organized to allow officers to review progress and prospects of the programs, exchange their experiences, and consider measures necessary to strengthen them and make them field-oriented. The purpose of the national workshop was to provide the opportunity of pooling the national and international experiences in the field of functional literacy and evolve a well-planned program of action for implementation in the years to come. The national workshop considered the following aspects of orientation and training of personnel engaged in the functional literacy project: (1) Who will be trained? (2) By whom? (3) Where and for how long? (4) What provision would be necessary for feedback and follow-up? and (5) What should be the contents of the syllabi of training for different categories of workers? (CK)
