Without Women No Development: Selected Case Studies from Asia of Non-Formal Education for Women.
Shah, Madhuri, Ed.
This handbook presents 15 case studies on the non-formal education of women from four Asian countries: India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Malaysia. The goal of this publication is to provide information about education-related issues concerning women and girls and development. This information is intended for those people, in governmental and non-governmental agencies, who are concerned with the planning and administration of non-formal education programs. The case studies afford a variety of experiences in operating such programs for women, under different cultural, political, ethnic, and social conditions. The case studies are organized into sections by country with each section accompanied by an introduction that highlights the points of the case studies of the region. The types of programs discussed include family planning, leadership training, self-reliance training, and rural development projects. (DB)
