This paper discusses a gender analysis of the perceptions of the Basubiya in North Western Botswana towards participation and utilisation of the Botswana National Literacy Programme (NLP). The need to determine the effects of the National Literacy Programme on the lives of the learners continues to be a major concern. The paper identifies reasons for participation in the programme among the minorities from a gender perspective. It explores the effects of the programme on the lives of men and women in Chobe in terms of how they utilised the literary and practical skills to improve their lives. Finally. the study examines the teaching and learning and general problems they had as learners in the National Literacy Programme.
