Abstract: This study examined the complementary role of functional literacy programs in accelerating literacy rate in the Wa Municipality and Ghana at large. Itfocusesspecifically on how functional literacy programs have affected literacy rate and the factors that account for attrition. The sample size of the study was 200, which wasselected usingstratified sampling. Data was collected using a questionnaire and from documentary sources. The data analysis was done using descriptive statistics. The results show that functional literacy programs have contributed to accelerating literacy rate. Furthermore, high family responsibility, lack of certainty about career goals and poor quality of interaction between participants and facilitators emerged as the major causes of attrition. The study recommends that regular in-service training of facilitators and provision of enough funds will help in preventing learners dropping out.
