They were take through various topics such as Biblical Principles of Working with Adults, Basis for Literacy, Witnessing and Discipleship and How to start Literacy Classes among others.

It is worthy to note that the initial thirteen persons who were trained have on their own recruited sixty-five more persons from their various communities for the project.
