A peasant farmers' literacy programme

Literacy gives people a framework for critical thinking and informed action. A number of peasant farmers' organisations have developed in the wake of economic restructuring in Honduras, Central America. The authors describe and assess the Literacy Programme of the National Office of Agricultural Workers (Central Nacional de Trabajadores del Campo, CNTC), which aims to provide farmers with the tools to have a say in their own futures in the changing social and economic climate of the country.
