Assessment of Community Learning Center (CLC) Experience in Cambodia Making the CLC Work (FY 2004)
Goal This program will assess the role of community learning centers (CLCs) in rural communities in Cambodia. CLCs commonly offer training in literacy, post-literacy, and vocational and life skills to the poor and disadvantaged people. It is expected that the assessment will identify lessons which can be not only relevant to Cambodia, but also shared among countries in Asia and the Pacific.
This program is a part of the 2004 International Exchange Program under the UNESCO/Japan Funds-in-Trust for the Promotion of International Cooperation and Mutual Understanding administered by the Asia/Pacific Cultural Centre for UNESCO (ACCU). It is a follow up research titled “Nagoya-Takeo Joint Initiative for Rural Literacy Promotion” conducted in 2002. The program was undertaken by four GSID faculty members and seven graduate students, in collaboration with faculty members and students of the Royal University of Phnom Penh, one of GSID’s academic cooperation universities, and its field work was conduced in March 2005. The field work, divided into two groups, visited CLCs sponsored by the Government, UNESCO, and NGOs, respectively, involving questionnaire surveys and in-depth interview. The two-day workshop was also held with CLC-related personnel and experts nationwide.
