Compendium of Experiences of Italian NGOs in Education for Rural People

by Marina Emiliani
in collaboration with Lavinia Gasperini
Extension, Education and Communication Service
FAO Research, Extension and Training Division

The Compendium details research undertaken as part of FAO led flagship initiative to support basic education for rural people. It includes summaries of 36 education projects benefiting rural people, identified among the activities of approximately 150 Italian NGOs. The projects described in the Compendium indicate that Italian NGO’s are serving a wide variety of vital learning needs of different subgroups of children, youth and adults. They address the poorer rural areas of the developing world, often reaching the people who are not assisted by state interventions and targeting crucial issues for rural development and sustainable livelihoods such as literacy as a cross cutting issue and basic life skills related to nutrition, health and HIV/AIDS, agriculture, small and micro enterprise, human rights, and broadening community participation.
