Ms Maggie Maki Guria worked on developing a national Adult Basic Education Programme (ABEP) for Papua New Guinea, with technical support from UIL’s Literacy and Basic Skills Programme. Her efforts were set in motion in 2011 with the support of UNESCO’s Capacity Development for Education for All (CAP EFA) Programme. As a follow-up measure, she worked to convince decision makers, mobilise funds, develop materials and train teachers on ABEP. The programme has now been piloted in at least three different settings.
