ABSTRACT

This dissertation presents findings from the study conducted in Ntugamo

Sub-country, Ntungamo district. The study aimed at finding out the impact of

FAL programme on the socio-economic development of rural communities in

western Uganda. A research was conducted in Ntungamo sub county in seven

parishes which included Kuhunga, Nyarubare Kikoni, Butare, Nyaburiza,

Ruhooko and Kizaara. The selection of the study objectives was mainly based

on the functional adult literacy training manual for the Republic of Uganda

(1996).

The objectives were to establish the factors influencing adult learners to

participate; different stakeholders involved in FAL, and to analyze community

involvement in FAL. Achieving the above objectives will inevitably result into a

better framework by which adult learners can utilize the services offered by the

functional adult literacy programme; improve collaboration between the adult

learners and FAL instructors.

The researcher used research instruments such as questionnaires, interview

guides with key informants and observation checklists (only for the researcher).

The study revealed that fewer people in rural communities are the

beneficiaries, regardless of the efforts put under FAL programme by Ngungamo

District Administration. Equally, fewer women as compared to men are

attending FAL classes. Hence, there is need for procurement of more funds to

implement FAL programme, community sensitization and awareness creation

for F AL programme and to strengthen policies that favour more women to

participate.
