ALEF's method for

adult education

Latest news from ALEF


ALEF, Adult Learning and Empowerment Facilitators, was founded in May 2010 as a Swedish non-profit organization. ALEF has developed a unique method of popular education for young people and adults who have not had the opportunity to attend school. In study groups that meet a couple of times a week, participants learn to read, write and do basic artithmatic, and to use the skills as tools to take control of their own lives and change their life situation.

Literacy and numeracy skills are a prerequisite for democracy

and for being able to fully use and develop one's

inner and outer resources.

Now this dizzying year is coming to an end. It's soon time to celebrate Christmas, a Christmas that may not be like other Christmases at all.

But one thing is the same: It is still possible to give gifts, both to loved ones and to those who are far away and have great needs.

This year, ALEF is focusing our Christmas collection on Uganda. Despite shutdowns and famine, our partner CACI has been able to start 54 study groups with about 1000 participants. The courses end during December to February. For many, the ALEF group has been a lifeline in a turbulent time. Many participants have started small kitchen gardens and grow their own vegetables, others save money together and give each other small loans. Read more about the project here.

The fact that the project was several months longer than planned due to the pandemic means increased costs by approximately SEK 85,000. We hope to raise that money through our Christmas fundraiser.

You can:

  • Give a gift via swish, plusgiro or bankgiro and label the gift "Christmas collection".

  • Order a gift certificate for SEK 200 + postage to give as a Christmas present to someone. Order no later than December 4 and we will mail the gift certificates to you or directly to the recipient. NOTE! If you as a private person buy 5-9 cards, they cost SEK 150 each. 10 cards or more costs SEK 100 each. Order here.

  • Start your own Christmas collection on Facebook or on Targetaid with ALEF as the beneficiary.
