- Thank you, Don, for correcting the typo and also for drawing reader's attention for the book project.Roshan----- Original Message -----From: Don OsbornSent: Wednesday, September 29, 2004 1:02 PMSubject: [Multilingual_Literacy] Re: Fw: Community Literacy Project of NepalRoshan, Thank you for this information and I hope this is not so much
an ending as a beginning. The website is very informative - there was
a typo in your letter so here is the URL again to give readers a live
link: http://clpn.org . I'd call readers' attention to your request
for publishers or other associates for a book on this experience.
Please keep us up to date on your progress. All the best!

Community Literacy Project of Nepal (supported by DFID) is officially
coming to an end on September 30, 2004 after the 5-year
implementation of its innovative literacy initiatives in several
communities of diverse cultures and languages. A documentation based
on stories and experiences of the practitioners linked with CLP will
be retained in the institutional memory of World Education Nepal.
Some key information and knowledge-base are also available in the
current CLP webpage (which will also be retained and updated by WEN)
htpp://clpn.org (unfortunately for international users and
fortunately for Nepali users, quite a number of our publications are
in Nepali). Efforts are being made to widen its products and
processes in broader national context. The Non Formal Education
Center of the Ministry of Education, Government of Nepal, will
hopefully mainstream those products and processes specifically to
ensure the successful operationalisation of the literacy elements of
> As a literacy practitioner who have had the opportunity to work in
CLP as the Project Director, I and my other colleague would want to
spend next few months or perhaps a year researching participants'
meaning, impact of the project in the communities (most of which are
affected by the on-going conflict and insurgency) and publishing a
book. We will be seeking the support of interested publishers or
other associates for this piece of work. I sincerely believe that the
publication will contribute to the body of knowledge with ground
breaking practical experiences of social-justice-oriented literacy
initiatives that are sensitive to community people's lived socio-
cultural and linguistic context and that truly respond to their every-
day literacy needs.
