As a result of the approval of a new three-year project cycle, DVV International will continue to support the development of ALE in eight Asian countries, covering the Middle East, Central Asia, Afghanistan and Southeast Asia. Funding will be provided by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). “We are grateful to the Ministry for their support and trust, and we hope that we will be able to improve the conditions for ALE in Asia in close cooperation with our partners from the region,” says Christoph Jost, Director of DVV International.
The main focus of the programme will be on improving the legal framework conditions and support the capacity building efforts. Along with the eight country programmes, a regional project will be implemented to strengthen ties between the Asian and Arab networks, with a specific focus on supporting their engagement in the CONFINTEA (UNESCO International Conferences on Adult Education) process. This is accompanied by measures to develop, pilot and evaluate curricula for the training of ALE staff and tools to support the organisational development of the partners.
