Unfortunately, it cannot be taken for granted in the Solomons to attend school, and illiteracy is a major problem, especially among girls.
This is why education has been chosen as the spine of the project St. Vincent and Louise Centre.
It is our aim to enable those unable to join the system of public schooling for various reasons, but mainly poverty, to gain at least basic education.
1. Multi level programmes of several months will provide basic knowledge integrated by the common denominator of literacy. Reading and writing aside, pupils will learn about computation and the English language.
2. Yearly programmes are oriented into educating those secondary school students that were unable to complete their education, to help them pass qualifying tests and thus enable them to continue their studies.
3. Special programmes for gaining craft skills, intended for girls that have previously been unable to attend school at all. This is because the population of girls is the most left out when it comes to schooling.
