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.
