UIL CONFINTEA Scholarship Supports Adult Basic Education in Papua New Guinea
In September 2013, Ms Maggie Guria, a Training Officer in the National Literacy and Awareness Secretariat at the Ministry of Education of Papua New Guinea, spent four weeks at the UIL Documentation Centre and Library conducting research. Her stay was supported by the UIL CONFINTEA Scholarship Programme, based on the private donation of the Nomura Center for Lifelong Integrated Education in Japan.
During her stay at UIL, Maggie received technical support from UIL’s Literacy and Basic Skills Programme in advancing the development of a national Adult Basic Education Programme (ABEP) for Papua New Guinea. This work was begun in 2011 with the support of UNESCO’s Capacity Development for Education for All (CAP EFA) Programme.
