about the project

Being able to read and write is in many circumstances an essential prerequisite for being able to improve the situation for oneself and one’s family. It increases the opportunities for getting a paid job, and it enables the mothers to help their children with their home work and to protect their families’ interests when dealing with the authorities or other third parties. 


All the women in Manman Troll must complete the reading/writing training course unless they are already literate The education is highly valued and most of the women obtain a relatively high standard of literacy. Manman Troll offers two separate paths of education; one academic path, aimed at women aspiring to master a profession, and one path for the women holding ambitions to start small companies on their own. Norad has contributed to the financing of Manman Troll since 2008.
