A Diverse and Dynamic Membership

As a regional, membership-based organisation, ASPBAE derives its strength and identity from its membership that is diverse and dynamic.

The members play an intrinsic and vital role in shaping ASPBAE’s work and future directions. ASPBAE’s membership is comprised of community-based organisations, NGOs, women’s organisations, popular education groups, educational institutions, national education campaign coalitions, national adult education networks, and individuals.
