ADULT BASIC EDUCATION & TRAINING (ABET)

   
  Approximately 75% of Deaf adults have functional literacy problems and 33% are illiterate in South Africa.
  This is largely due to the inequitable resource allocation of our past.  Illiteracy amongst the majority of Deaf
  adults is highest in KwaZulu Natal.  The ABET Programme equips Deaf adults with the skills necessary
  to function in broader society
   
  The classes cover literacy, numeracy, basic sign language and life skills
