HA NOI (VNS)— Around 1.2 million people aged 15-60 from 14 underprivileged provinces are expected to escape illiteracy by 2020.
The plan should raise the literacy level in those provinces to 94 per cent, and 98 per cent nationwide.
The project aims to remove illiteracy by 2020 under a plan recently signed by Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan.
The provinces include An Giang, Bac Kan, Cao Bang, Gia Lai, Ha Giang, Kon Tum and Yen Bai.
Under the project, the number includes 300,000 ethnic minority people, raising their literacy rate to 90 per cent by 2020.
According to Nhan, classes for the deaf, ethnic minorities and visually impaired people would be set up.
The Ministry of Education and Training has been assigned to compile anti-illiteracy programmes for these groups.
The ministry has also been instructed to improve the programmes in line with regular high school programmes after 2015.
The project is being funded by the National Target Programme on Education and Training. — VNS
