Directory of Adult Education Centres in Africa.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Dakar (Senegal). Regional Office for Education in Africa.
The Bureau Regional pour L'Education en Afrique (BREDA) survey, published partly in French, assembled data on the activities of adult education institutions in Africa in order to identify and develop future regional documentation centers. This draft copy of the survey is the first step towards improving international collaboration among documentation centers serving adult education. The survey was formulated through personal staff visits, questionnaires, and studies of the documentation available in Regional Offices of Education. The centers in Cameroon (6 centers), the Congo/Zaire (3 centers), the Ivory Coast (5 centers), Dahomey (1 center), Ethiopia (1 center), Ghana (3 centers) Kenya (3 centers), Madagascar/Malawi (5 centers), Nigeria (22 centers), Sudan (3 centers), Tanzania (8 centers), Uganda (3 centers), and Zambia (6 centers) are covered in the areas of activities, financial resources and publications. The activities section describes the nature of the centers as either those with strong documentation programs, training programs, or information and research programs or as agencies concerned with general or special aspects of adult education. The scope of the adult education programs cover literacy, vocational training, social work, health, agriculture, cooperatives, regional planning and economic development, village studies, language study, and general and continuing education.
