A three-day regional conference organized by the Sierra Leone Adult Education Association (SLADEA) has ended in Kabala on Saturday October 11, 2008.
The conference was held in collaboration with the Finnish Refugee Council.
SLADEA’s National President, Prof. Joe A.D. Alie says the conference is one of several executive meetings his organization is holding with executive of the Kabala branch to prepare for the final triennial conference scheduled to take place in Kabala in early December of this year.
Prof. Alie said SLADEA has 13 branches in the four regions of Sierra Leone.
“The entire membership of SLADEA will meet in one of the regions to plan for the next three years,” he says, adding that a similar conference was held in Bonthe three years ago.
“Kabala was unanimously chosen for the hosting of this year’s conference,” Prof. Alie said while disclosing that the organization was founded in 1978 to help Adult learners in various endeavors including Adult literacy, market skills, HIV/AIDS education, peace building and youth consolidation.
“This year we will also celebrate our 30th anniversary during the conference in Kabala,” he says, noting that SLADEA is the leading Adult education organization in the country.
“The Kabala branch is one of the most active branches involved in the work to promote adult literacy in the country,” he said.
