Paulo Freire Institute provides Adult Literacy on a one-to-one basis with the help of trained volunteers. The Institute itself offers an informal environment which help participants to feel at ease. The tutors are aided with tailored handbooks prepared by the literacy unit. Moreover tutors are capable to respond to the acutal needs of their learners. Computers are used as a tool and as an incentive, apart from the added value of helping learners to increase their computer skills.
The Institute has produced a tool kit to teach basic Maltese to adults. This was done through the European Social Fund: ESF 3.66. This tool kit is being used also by the Directorate of Life Long Learning (DLLL) and at secondary level in Government and Church schools.
This is to acknowledge that Paulo Freire Institute was beneficiary of financial assistance by MSDC through the NGO co-financing fund.
