one can wonder whether non-formal education receives adequate financing.
The method adopted for this study is mixed research method, using a multifaceted approach involving case study and descriptive survey research designs. The case study approach was adopted in order to have an in-depth examination of a specific country educational programme.
With regard to its commitment, study findings showed that Government was not financing non-formal education adequately. There is little political commitment. The study also revealed inefficient budget allocation mechanism and suggested a cautious approach to budget allocation modalities. The paper recommended that efforts should be made by policy and decision-makers to reconsider their
financial commitment and establish some relevant and transparent criteria for budget allocation. Other funding sources should be explored in order to realize optimum level of investment for a full development of non-formal education programme. The paper found clear evidence that taking into account unofficial funding agencies budget has a positive impact.
