Adult Education Community Project and Planned Parenthood. A Study of an Inter-Agency Project in Honduras, Central America.
Davies, Margaret H.
This booklet for field workers and project developers describes two consecutive IPREFA projects in Honduras that integrated a responsible parenthood element into a functional education program and integrated several agencies into project planning and implementation. Preliminary information provides a basis for this nonformal education program and some background. Discussion of IPREFA Stage 1 first considers site (Las Guanchias) and planning. The section on project implementation details the work schedule and cites corresponding points for consideration that comprise an objective list of potential problems and suggests alternative actions. Conclusions and principal lessons learned are summarized. The discussion of IPREFA 2 begins by overviewing the planning for this adult education program for rural development that combines elements of literacy teaching, health education, and family planning. Other sections describe implementation, midterm evaluation, and activities (individual work by staff, development of literacy teaching materials). A concluding section raises issues regarding projects of this type, especially concerning the integration of agencies in a single program effort. Appendixes include a discussion of various nonformal education approaches with glossary of terms in adult education and community development, description of strategies for project planners, sample pages of project-developed literacy and numeracy primers, brief bibliography, details of financing, and survey instruments.
