In this chapter, we explore how the South African Kha Ri Gude mass literacy campaign, flowing from and drawing on the experience of the an earlier national literacy campaign, was developed to support those otherwise marginalized in the South African society. We explain the aims of the campaign as furthering the goal of ‘Literacy Plus’ (i.e. Literacy Plus enabling increased participation in economic, social, and political life). We explicate how a range of (mixed) methods was used for soliciting feedback from learners (as well as from educators and coordinators) throughout both campaigns and further to this in an assessment that took place (2013–2015) by the Adult Basic Education and Youth Development Department at the University of South Africa. We indicate how, in the assessment, we considered ourselves to be involved in a relationship of reciprocity with the (sampled) participants as we explored the impact of the Kha Ri Gude campaign from their perspectives (as developed/recounted through the interactional encounter with us).
