ALADIN-India was launched at a national workshop in March 2005 and is jointly co-ordinated by Dr. S.Y. Shah and Dr. P.R. Goswami. The national network consists of currently 47 documentation and information services in the area of adult learning and literacy in India. The organisations are National Level Organisations, State Level Organisations, University Departments of Adult Education and Non-Governmental Organisations working in the area of adult learning and literacy documentation and information. Please contact Dr. Shah for a National Directory of all organisations. ALADIN-India is networked through an e-Mail listserv and meets for workshops and capacity-building initiatives. A Learning Package on Participatory Adult Learning Documentation and Information Networking (PALDIN) has been developed during 2006-2007 for the capacity building of the staff of ALADIN institutions. The package consists of thirty units of self learning materials prepared in an ODL mode. It was field tested during July -December 2007. The learning package has been hosted at the ALADIN Website: http://www.unesco.org/education/aladin/paldin
This package was subsequently accepted by the Indira Gandhi National Open University, New Delhi and enlarged into a six months Diploma programme which was launched in July 2009. The details of the course can be accessed at http://www.ignou.ac.in
