Supporting the Department of Non-Formal Education of the Ministry of Education

Key partner of DVV International in Lao PDR is the Department for Non-Formal Education (DNFE) of the Ministry of Education and Sport.

The Regional office supports the work of the department by different means, including sharing and exchange workshops, equipment, trainings, study visits and promoting the participation of DNFE staff at regional and international events.

In charge of developing, monitoring and conceptualizing the Lifelong Learning policy in Lao PDR, the DNFE is the counterpart of DVV International on the policy level. On demand, our office is providing technical assistance, consulting and policy advise. Annual highlights of the cooperation are the support for the annual NFE conference and the celebration of the Literacy day. Regular meetings between both decide on the next steps of the cooperation.
