The project “Support of adult education in Belarus” is the central project of the Representative Office of the German Adult Education Association in the Republic of Belarus. Implementation of the project started in 2009 and coincided with launching of the Representative Office . The project is being financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Within this very project that aiming at developing effective system of adult education the majority of the events are held by the Representative Office and partners.
After the new Belarusian Code of Education entered in force as well as relevant regulations took effect, the term “adult education” has broadened its meaning considerably. At the time it means not only a system of advanced training but also any organized educational process for adults (including non-formal education). All this creates new opportunities and sets new tasks that include ensuring effective cooperation between different social stakeholders, development of regional systems of further and non-formal adult education and their optimization according to the needs of the regions etc. The project “Learn to Act” is designed to contribute to accomplishing this mission.
The project “Education Opens Doors” is a continuation of the activities implemented by Gomel region public association “Community Development Projects”, a partner of the Representative Office of DVV International in Belarus. The activities were undertaken within the framework of the project “Adult Education for the Professionalization and Re-Socialization in Correctional Institutions” (2010-2013), as well as the international scientific-practical conference “Broadening the Access to Education in the Penitentiary System” held on November 29-30, 2012 in Gomel.
