Challenges Facing the Sustainability of Adult and Continuing Education Programmes in Kenya

Iddah Kituyi Wanyama


Generally, not much research has been done in the area of Adult and Continuing Education Programmes (ACE) programmes in Kenya just as in other parts of the world. According to (Carron, 1990) Adult literacy has been a neglected area in terms of data collection and research, so much that finding even precise information about simple facts like the number of enrolled adults or instructors has been difficult in most cases. The few studies done however, indicate a lack of genuine commitment and seriousness in the recognition and actual implementation of the programmes to the extent they are not achieving the goal of adult literacy. This spaper therefore seeks to discuss the challenges facing the sustainability of the ACE programmes in Kenya.
