ALEF currently has partnerships in seven countries: DRC (in South Kivu and Kongo Central) , Guinea, Iraq, Togo, Benin, Ethiopia and Uganda. Our strategy is to build capacity in local organizations already active in the countries, familiar with the culture and language, and understanding the life conditions of the people. Our contribution is to train the project staff on how to set up an adult education program, and to create course materials together, adapted to the needs of the people.
