The Literacy Symposium presented the evaluation findings on the flagship Zenex Literacy Pilot Project; and served as a springboard for collaboration between literacy stakeholders across the country, including academics, government officials, NGOs, donors, and M&E practitioners. The event was an opportunity to share lessons and experiences from various literacy programmes and research; candidly reflect on what works and does not work, and identifying synergies and gaps that can be collectively maximised and addressed.
