Dagaare Literacy Project – A means to scripture engagement and a vehicle to transform lives

This project is to empower the Dagaare people to engage literary materials and eventually bring about total transformation in behaviour, lifestyle and ability to make right choices. It is the aim of the Bible Society to assist non-literate Dagaare speakers to be able to read and express themselves in writing in the Dagaare language using Scripture based Literacy Primers and New Reader Portions. A total of 3,000 copies of Dagaare Primers, 5,000 copies of Dagaare New Reader Portions (1-5) will be made available to 1,500 new learners in 20 communities to facilitate their reading and writing skills within the first year of the project.
