Inasmuch as agricultural development has become a primary concern in many African nations, this project was designed in order to provide some basic insight into the actual content, purpose, and direction of a specific movement. Adult education, here, is viewed as one of the major vehicles through which a nation can develop human resources which have capabilities of rendering invaluable services to the nation. Traditionally, rural human resources have lacked the skills and attitudes necessary to effect the desired changes. It is further viewed as a long-term process which must be accorded the same level of concern as formal institutions of learning for the young. The primary intent of this dissertation is the examination of the role that adult educational programs play in the national development of the rural areas in Ghana. Secondly, the project investigates a non-formal adult educational program which is designed to promote rural development; and seeks to examine the effects the project has on attitude formation in the rural areas.
