African Development Bank, Oct 31, 2005 - Social Science - 140 pages
Six per cent of the Africans still lead a nomadic lifestyle. Marginalized by their highly mobile and harsh way of life, nomadic communities pose a particular challenge for education. This book draws on a wide range of literature bringing together the disparate views and experiences in providing education for nomadic communities. It provides a comprehensive insight into the challenges, as well as the constraints and opportunities in developing the right programmes.
