Learners from the National Literacy Programme in Namibia (NLPN) discussed, 'the importance of social relationships and economic status with regards to their understanding of literacy and of education more broadly' (Papen 2005, 10) during conversations with ethnographer Uta Papen.
However, as highlighted in the discussion with learners from the NLPN, obtaining proficiency in use of the English language is an empowering quality that provides pathways to further education and employment opportunities otherwise not available to non-English speaking Africans.
In the past couple of years, an independent network for recent LIS graduates called Manchester NLPN (2) was formed in Manchester, and a similar group, New Professionals Day Ireland (3), was launched in Ireland.
