The research design for this study was descriptive and interpretive. Thus, the study attempted to provide answers to the research questions both from the conceptual framework and the review of the related literature. I used a qualitative research approach. Qualitative understanding, it should be noted, is not just a matter of scholarly inquiry. The methods of qualitative inquiry are for studying and understanding people in whatever setting and under whatever circumstances one encounters them (Patton, 1990). For example, there are many problems to be encountered when a researcher decides to use a questionnaire to study unschooled people. First, there arises a problem of interpretation of research questions to unschooled respondent. Secondly, the translation of respondents' responses into the English language becomes another task.
