A good many women wish to acquire literacy skills in haoussa in Goubeye in Dankassari.
A first group did so in 2009-2010 through the decentralised cooperation Cesson Dankassari project. Another group of 33 women joined a literacy class in 2010-2011, within the Cesson Dankassari decentralized cooperation, in the village of Dogontapki.
In 2011-2012, 50 women benefited from a literacy course in Dogontapki.

In the 2012-2014 period, a group of 33 women followed a literacy course in Guizara. Following a high demamand, two groups of 25 women attended a literacy cours in haoussa in the villages of Karki Mallam in the 2014-2016 in Karki Mallam, as well as in the villages of Kamrey in 2015-2017 and of Chanoino the 2016-2018.

In the 2017-2019 period, two literacy centers are operating at Tounzourawa and Toudoun-Makera, as well as in Gofawa, within the creation of a multifunctional platform. From 2019 to 2020, two literacy centers operated at Toudoun-Makera and Bayan Doutchi.

Women’s literacy improves their daily self-sufficiency and encourages them to have an income-inducing activity. The group of literate women in Karki-Malam asked for a micro-loan system to be created after their 2-year training (which has been in place since 2018 thanks to funding from Cesson -Sévigné.)
