DVV International has been represented in South Africa since 1998 with a country office and is engaged there for a more advanced and flexible non-formal youth and adult education.
For over 20 years, South Africa has had a democratically elected government. It is counted among middle-income countries, is ranked 113 on the Human Development index of the United Nations (2018), and thus well above the African average. Since 1994, topic-building and education and training are high on the government agenda, but with an emphasis on vocational and formal school education. Along with the transformation of the political system in South Africa, education policy, including adult education, has also changed greatly. Remedial, compensatory and non-formal education, however, only have a small share in the dominant adult education concept. The economically disadvantaged and the poorly educated are rarely offered alternative learning environments which would allow them opportunities to learn and change their lives.
