When year did you join the committee?


Why did you want to get involved with AACAL?

I firmly believe that AACAL can help people get a degree that will allow them to move forward in life.

What do you think learners have to gain by enrolling with AACAL?

Our organization wants learners who have had difficulties in school for all kinds of reasons, gain back their confidence in themselves. To know that they can improve their situation. We also want to empower learners to function and advance as individuals in today's society.

In your opinion, as a society, what do we have to benefit from an increased level of education of the population?

We are certain that our region's economy would be much better off if our population was better educated. This would allow learners to have access to good jobs, better pay and a better future.
