Rural Literacy Solutions is a community-based organization in Tamale, Northern Region. It is non-compulsory and an extra-curricula education. This community-based organization is a practical response to the diagnosed high rate of illiteracy in Ghana especially the rural areas of the Northern part of the country. It is also a contribution towards the realization of Sustainable Development Goals, precisely Goal 4, which is to “ENSURE INCLUSIVE AND EQUITABLE QUALITY EDUCATION AND PROMOTE LIFE-LONG LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL.”
The causes of the high illiteracy rate among other things include factors such as:
- Teacher deficit
- Lack of infrastructure
- Lack of appreciation for literacy
The long term effect of the high illiteracy rate is that it brings a barrier to continuing education and employment opportunities in these societies. This is what makes the intervention of Rural Literacy Solutions necessary.
In carrying out our activities, we are working in conjunction with head teachers, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), Districts Assemblies and other relevant stakeholders such as community VIP’s, like chiefs and elders.

Little Libraries: We give small libraries to underprivileged communities, allowing those who would not otherwise have access to literature and educational resources.
