This report describes the clearinghouse activities of the Non-Formal Education (NFE) Information Center through August 1980 and details efforts, during the projects' second and third biannual periods, to strengthen the capacity of select NFE resource centers in Africa, Aisa, and Latin America. The report first addresses the continued operation of a clearinghouse for user-oriented information and knowledge-building related to nonformal education and development, and includes demographic data on the world-wide network and a discussion of center activities. Secondly, it examines the center's work in providing technical assistance toward creating national/regional NFE centers in developing areas. Included are references to visits made to organizations in the Philippines, Thailand, and Kenya, formal agreements of cooperation, and inservice training programs at Michigan State University. Following is a report of further technical assistance activities which includes a change in contract responsibilities to strengthen the women in development (WID) dimensions of the project, and a summary of a visit to South America to establish a regional center. The report summary identifies interfaces between the technical assistance activities and clearinghouse activities of the center, and summarizes concerns that may need special attention in the next year. Five appendices provide visit details and cooperative agreements. (RAA)
