CHRISTIANE DANGBLA, MONO DEPARTMENT
"I am a member of the supervisory committee of the Madokpon cassava cooperative in the commune of Houéyogbé. Before, I could neither read nor write in my mother tongue. I had to do controls in our cooperative, but I was unable to take notes. With the arrival of the literacy classes three years ago, I can now read, write and calculate in my language. I am able to keep track of purchases and sales, take notes in our meetings, make phone calls, and I can also tell time now. This project has brought a positive change in my life, for me, my family and my cooperative!"
