Sokola Asmat

While illiteracy rate in Asmat district is more than 50%, Mumugu Batas Batu village has more than 97% illiterate people. The remoteness, cultural reasons and costly transportation are some of the contributing factors. In 2013, Sokola collaborated with the Diocese of Agats to organize a literacy program for children and adolescents in Kampung Mumugu Batas Batu. This program involved 92 learning participants who are now literate and can apply their literacy skills in their daily lives.
