Abstract:

In a small village in northern Ghana, a group of men and women discuss their daily chores with the help of a chart they've drawn in the dust. This village is part of a program called Reflect, which aims to reach the 900 million illiterate adults across the world. Reflect uses participants' own knowledge and experience as starting points for learning. Lines in the dust looks at this program in Ghana and India, and how it not only teaches people to read, write, and work with numbers, the participants are also changing ideas about men's and women's separate workloads, standing up for their rights, earning more money for their families, and becoming self-assured.
