Non-Formal Education (NFE)
UNESCO has established broad and deep collaboration with the MoEYS, the Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MoWA), the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training as well as with other UN agencies to facilitate the knowledge and capacity development for key NFE practitioners, e.g. literacy planners, managers, assessment personnel and master trainers. UNESCO also works closely with the European Commission, the Asian Development Bank and the National Federation of UNESCO Associations in Japan (NFUAJ) in mobilizing external and national resources for literacy and NFE activities. In particular for Community Learning Centres, Equivalency Programmes, Literacy Programmes, Re-entry Programmes, and bilingual education activities.
