Promoting Learning for Development
Speech presented at the Lifelong Learning for Farmers (L3F) Meeting, Nairobi, Kenya, 31 July 2013, by Professor Asha Kanwar, Commonwealth of Learning, It gives me great pleasure to be at this important meeting of the Lifelong Learning for Farmers and I thank you for the opportunity to present a very important initiative of the Commonwealth of Learning. // COL is an intergovernmental organisation, established by Commonwealth Heads of Government when they met in Vancouver in 1987. We believe that access to learning is the key to development. We are very grateful to the Government of Kenya for its continued financial and intellectual support. // Our mission is to help Commonwealth Member States and institutions to harness the potential of distance education and Information and Communication Technologies for expanding access to education and training. Our slogan is ‘Learning for Development’.
