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.

The roads to the study groups in South Kivu in Congo often consist only of a steep muddy path between two fields. Here it is easiest to get around with an off-road motorcycle. In 2015, ALEF received money from the New Wave Group to buy three motorcycles for our partner in the field, ADECK. Now they are worn out after long and faithful service. It's time to buy three new motorcycles, so that the work can continue.  The cost will be SEK 50,000. 

The frequent follow-up visits in the study groups are a prerequisite for them to function well. In 2022, ADECK hopes to be able to carry out more groups than any other year: 100 groups with a total of 2,200 participants.
