KAB Global Outreach Report 2009

Friday, 06 November 2009 08:38
This report gives quick overview of the global outreach of the KAB program as of September 2009. Quite some detective work went into preparing this report since no systematic monitoring system had been established for the KAB program. The data presented in the report is thus collected from numerous educational institutions and ILO offices and colleagues in the close to 50 countries where KAB has been introduced. Many devoted individuals contributed to this report and thanks is due to all who went the "extra mile" to furnish the information. Special thanks is due to Thais Lucas de Rezende who showed a particular flair for detective work and for making sense of  all the information. Henceforth, we hope that this knowledge sharing platform will provide a space for the growing community of KAB practitioners to share information and keep the community growing.
