This report describes the ongoing activities of the Non-Formal Education Information Center during 1979, and details its first half-year of efforts to strengthen the capacity of selected NFE resource centers in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The report first addresses the continued operation of a clearinghouse for user-oriented information and knowledge-building related to non-formal education and development. Included in this section is demographic data on the worldwide NFE network and a discussion of the various activities of the center including its program of publications, maintenance of an NFE resource base, and inquiry-response service. Second, the report examines the center's expanded scope of work under a new contract which began 31 August 1979. Included in this section is reference to visits made to the Institut Africain pour le Developpement Economique et Social, Abidjan, and to the Institut du Sahel, Bamako. Finally, the report reviews the objectives of the center and assesses its accomplishments, problems encountered, responses and results, recommendations, and the agenda for the ensuing six months.
