In emergency situations, education programs for adults are of special significance as communities are disrupted and individuals, especially women, must take on new roles and responsibilities. In these cases, the ability for adults to speak a second language, read, and do math is of life saving importance as it determines whether they are able to support themselves and their families. Specifically, these skills enable them to be employed, receive information, buy or sell materials, as well as access health and social services.
