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.
IMPORTANT UPDATE ON OUR PROJECTS
The corona virus has now reached all African countries. All our partners have compiled reliable information about the corona virus in their native language as they spread via text message, and in Togo and Benin also via FM radio. In ALEF's partner countries, Togo, Uganda and Congo-Kinshasa, far-reaching measures have been taken to stop the infection. All our study groups are forced to pause. Unfortunately, all food prices increase in avalanche, while many lose all income. ALEF has put in extra measures to support the employees in our projects. In May, our three partner organizations began distributing food as a relief to starving families who are closely linked to our projects. Label your gift "Food" and it goes to the emergency room.
