The Family Literacy Program aims to contribute towards building literate communities by enhancing both formal and informal basic education mechanisms within families.

Umuhuza Family Literacy program focuses on:

  • Early childhood development which aim at ensuring that every child is given the opportunity to have the best start in life by achieving their fullest potential. The program highlights the absolute need for families to care for their children, especially during the first six years of their lives.
  • The culture of reading promotion or early grade reading: Since 2013, Umuhuza has engaged in the culture of reading by implementing the Community Action component of the Literacy Boost project in partnership with Save the Children. Making the culture of reading promotion a key sub-program of the family literacy program came as a global and national priority, based on the proven fact that reading as a culture contributes to an increased quality of education.
