image of Rural Community Resource Centres

Practical, sound advice on setting up and running rural community centres. This guide is written for anyone living in or working with rural communities (community leaders, teachers, extension workers, women’s group leaders, youth group leaders, etc.) and who feel their community could benefit from having informational and learning resources. It is written clearly and simply, with examples from around the world, and includes illustrations and checklists.




In mid-1985 the Commonwealth Secretariat sought the views of over 200 organisations and government departments throughout the world about the need for a practical handbook on setting up and operating rural learning resource centres in developing countries. Their responses revealed that no such publication existed and that a simple manual would make a very useful contribution to rural development.
