After learning to read and count, I can sell alone the rice produced in my field. " The story of Rosalina”
Rosalina Gabriel, a native of Namacata, Nicoadala district, married and mother of 2 , a member of the "Novo Caminho" Farmers' Club, tells us about her participation in literacy classes.
"I am a rice producer, and I have more than 1 hectare of land where I cultivate with my husband every year. I joined the farmers' club in 2014, when the Novo Caminho Club was being created where we do various activities."
"I did not have the opportunity to study as a girl because of family issues and I felt bad at every training I attended, seeing my friends write their names and I did not know how to write. When I found out about the opening of the literacy center, during an encounter with ADPP, I tried to understand how this works and its advantages. When it became clear, I went out and registered myself in literacy classes."
"At this moment, I am attending the 3rd year of literacy, I already know how to write my name and I know how to read.. These teachings have helped me personally sell part of the produce from my field, before it was my husband who sold the produce and he never brought the full amount back home."
Rosalina now sells production surplus and plans better on household expenses.
"When I finish my 3rd year, I will continue my studies, because we have a school nearby and hope to be a great producer and marketer of rice in the future."
