(5/11) Literate Quarter Project (LQ):
Defining the project:
Literate quarter (LQ) is a program that deals with cultural illiteracy eradication in an innovative manner, since illiteracy eradication is not restricted to teaching the alphabet; rather, it governs all other means for living. LQ brilliantly aims at particular quarters in a certain city, which witnesses high ratios of illiteracy amongst individuals. This program, in addition, is interested in females’ illiteracy eradication alphabetically and culturally, along with having them acquire scientific proficiencies, which hopefully would motivate them towards fruitful work attractively in such a way that would raise their awareness of their problems and needs, in order to successfully deal with life care. Another advantage of this program is that it makes possible the objectives of the government five-years-course plan, the eighth, through the expansion of the current illiteracy eradication domains, and make use of the flexible system models available, by evolutional formulae that would go along with illiteracy eradication needs and circumstances.
