39.            EDUCATION WORKSHOP

With the onset of mental illness at young age
Many members remain uneducated
And function in menial jobs.
This workshop plans to facilitate literacy
And Skills development projects
To train ourselves trough education
And practically experiences.
Education is more than just a problem
Our kind remains the poorest of the poor
Because of our illness and its symptoms.
Therefore must we diligently work
To better our in others eyes
Through being educated.
Through formal and informal means
Which must be task orientated
According to our goals and needs.
Education gives us power
To determine our own lives.
