Learning for Living

Adult education is common around the world. Many of our schools open their doors to people of all ages from their communities. ‘Life-long learning’ has become a popular if not – clichéd – term but the concept has power. In impoverished and traditional societies adult education is largely out of reach. The struggle for survival occupies all time and energy. Yet, the drive for self improvement is strong and the economic incentive to develop skills makes sense in any context. Communicating with adults – giving them the means to learn and apply their new understandings can help lift whole communities out of poverty. Schools in remote communities perhaps have the greatest responsibility for facilitating education for all.
