The women participating in "Arab Women Speak Out" requested that a
literacy program be established. ADEW complied in the year 2000,
recognizing that literacy is pivotal to building women's self-esteem and
resistance to legal exploitation.
The literacy program uses the Caritas "Taalam Taharar" curriculum with
some variations to make the classes more interactive and participatory.
ADEW uses film-screenings, field trips, informal tests and extracurricular
activities to make learning an enjoyable experience.
