Hello, everyone. I am Eunsil Yu who is working as an APCEIU supporter.


I am majoring Business Administration through the program of Kyunghee-Andrews University. The purpose of program is cultivating global talent. Thanks to the school's aim, I could study in various countries including the Philippines and the US. I have interests in international issues.


In addition, I love to carry out various exchanges including culture, language and so on with foreigners. Thus, I have been consistently doing some educational volunteer works not only for foreigner students who are studying Korean culture and language at the Institution of International Education of Kyunghee university in Seoul, but also for adolescents to teach economics through JA Korea(Junior Achievement Korea) as a volunteer group of university students.


Meanwhile, by chance I got an information that UNESCO APCEIU(Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding) was looking for supporters and I applied for this splendid opportunity without hesitation. Fortunately, I got a chance to work as the 2nd batch of APCEIU supporters. I am definitely delighted to do this activity with other 6 members.


Recently, I have joined a mentoring program called the Citi-JA Hero Program for children from multi-cultural families which is operated by CITI bank and JA Korea as well as APCEIU supporters. By doing diverse activities and by communicating with multi-cultural families, I am learning what education for international understanding is.


I am going to inform varied, familiar and useful information based on education for international understanding from APCEIU, neither difficult nor complex through my blog and I would like to communicate with you.

Hello, this is Sol Jee Ahn, who has been selected as one of the 2nd Supporters of APCEIU.

I am 24 years old and I attend Sogang University, majoring in American Culture and Political Science.

Since when I was little, I've been interested in various languages and cultures, which led me to have interest in diplomacy, which plays an important role in deciding the relations between countries. Therefore, I've always tried to study or do something related to my interests.

At Sogang University, I am a member of H.U.G., a student club which helps foreign exchange students by tutoring Korean, guiding them to many tourist attractions in Seoul. 

The picture above was taken last year when I went to Kyeongbok Palace with exchange students!

As a representative of Korea, I try to be more friendly and nice to foreigners so that they can have good impression about Korea and talk to their family and friends about Korea after they return.

Moreover, I am doing internship at East Asia Foundation, a nonprofit organization which publishes Global Asia and holds regular seminars regarding East Asia. Also, luckily, I was selected as one of the seven supporters of APCEIU. From these two "activities", I experience many things that I just learned through books.

In the picture, can you see the phrase, "Do What You Love"? It's the motto of my life!

And also, the title of my personal blog is "Do What You Love". Come visit my personal blog at http://allez2012.blog.me. I post about APCEIU there as well.

Nice to meet you and I hope you would be more interested in APCEIU, "Global Citizenship", "Education for International Understanding", et cetera, which seem so far from you but in fact, which are very close to your life.

Although Kazakhstan already had remarkable achievements in the formal education sector, many improvements are required in other areas. Here is where regional Community Learning Centers take part in order to make a difference.

Formal Educational Achievements
The education system in Kazakhstan has been strengthened under the belief that it plays a key role in rebuilding a politically and economically stable society. As such, Kazakhstan shows its strength in the formal education sector. In 2011, the country ranked fourth out of 127 in UNESCO’s Education for All Development Index (EDI). EDI is a composite index that indicates the general achievement of a country’s education system. Four EFA goals are measured and counted. They include universal primary education (Goal 2), adult literacy (Goal 4), gender parity and equality (Goal 5), and quality of education (Goal 6). Kazakhstan’s achievements in every section are far above the world average and its regional neighbors in Central Asia. Furthermore, Kazakhstan holds a youth literacy rate of 99.8%, which is the highest in the Central Asian region.
Despite the achievements in public formal education, the country still has many areas to improve such as computer access and education, technical education and adult education. Because those are left out of formal education, CLCs currently take part in projects to educate its residents.
Community Learning Centers (CLCs)
Community Learning Centers (CLCs) were built since 2003 to provide practical education programmes to a wide range of community members. Because the government’s education policy is focused on child education, community members established CLCs under the financial support of UNESCO and the supervision of the local NGO Association Education for All (EFA) Kazakhstan in order to meet the learning demands of people and areas often neglected by the government.
Currently, there are a total of seven CLCs, and they are located in Amanbokter, Karbala, Kordai, Nogaibai, Sortobe, Karaganda, and Taraz.
Goals of CLCs
The objectives of CLCs are:
- To empower local people to be self-reliant
- To improve citizens’ quality of life
- To stimulate community development
- To identify and address the various needs of the community
- To mobilize community resources and human capital


Programme Evaluation

According to UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL), education programmes run by CLCs often include computer literacy, health education, sewing, carpentry, foreign language, pre-professional training and community enrichment programmes for the entire community.
Programme evaluation was conducted internally by the CLC committee, and externally by the supporting NGO Association EFA Kazakhstan.
CLCs reported positive achievements of its objectives by improving personal capacities, community business skills, and knowledge on hygiene and health as well as empowerment of marginalized groups, widespread of modern technology, modernization of attitudes, and participation in local governance. Moreover, 99% of the sample group of participants showed their satisfaction about the quality and content of the programme.
However, limitations were also detected according to “Sustainability of Community Learning Centers: Community Ownership and Support”, a report by UNESCO UIL and UNESCO Bangkok Office.
First, there is an issue of financial instability. Despite high demands for CLCs, funding is insufficient to expand programmes and activities to meet residents’ educational needs. In addition, five CLCs in Kazakhstan are not registered as non-profit organizations, and they are still taxed as profit-seeking organizations.
Second, majority of the heads in CLCs remain as passive recipients, not actively reacting about the programmes. CLCs need active leaders who can develop and strategically spread programmes that are really needed by residents.
Finally, there are no specific measurement criteria that evaluate the effectiveness of CLCs although CLCs are conducting a general evaluation and monitoring of their programmes. It is necessary to demonstrate effectiveness by using objective statistical results to clearly identify the results of the projects.
