TL;DR: In this article, a case study was carried out in order to analyse the planning and implementation of adult literacy programs in selected Community Development sub-centres in Lusaka District.
Abstract: The study was carried out in order to analyse the planning and implementation of adult literacy programmes in selected Community Development sub-centres in Lusaka District. The objectives that guided the study were to: examine how adult literacy programmes are planned in selected Community Development sub-centres in Lusaka District; establish how adult literacy programmes are implemented in selected Community Development sub-centres in Lusaka District; determine the factors that affect the planning and implementation of adult literacy programmes in selected Community Development sub-centres in Lusaka District; and explore strategies which could be employed to enhance the planning and implementation of adult literacy programmes in selected Community Development sub-centres in Lusaka District. This study adopted a case study design. The target population included: all adult learners; all adult literacy facilitators; all Community Development Assistants; the District Community Development Officer for Lusaka District and all the Community Development Planners in the Ministry of Community Development and Social Services.

The experts in the Department of Community Development at the national level, together with experts from other line ministries, decided on the course content and produced manuals to be used in all the sub-centres. Staff at the lower levels, facilitators, learners and other stakeholders were not involved in the planning of these programmes. When it came to the implementation of the programmes, it was mainly left to the facilitators with little assistance from the staff in the MCDSS in charge of literacy. The findings also revealed that planning and implementation of adult literacy programmes in selected Community Development subcentres was affected by: lack of collaboration among stakeholders in the planning and implementation process; lack of qualified facilitators; lack of funding and lack of adequate teaching and learning materials. Some of the suggested strategies to improve the planning and implementation of adult literacy programmes include: coming together of all stakeholders to plan for literacy programmes and engagement of suitably qualified facilitators to…
