Fostering Educational Participation in Pastoral Communities through Non-Formal Education: The Ghanaian Perspective
Mfum-Mensah, Obed
International Journal of Educational Development, v23 n6 p661-677 Nov 2003
This paper is an investigation of the impact of the Shepherd School Program, a non-formal basic education program implemented in seven pastoral communities in northern Ghana. The paper argues that non-formal basic education programs can have an important impact on the educational development of a community. However, for this to be possible, the context of such programs must answer to communities' social, cultural, economic and other immediate needs.
