Networklearning manuals – terms of use

Organisations in the South (Africa, Asia, Southern America, ex-USSR) can download copies free of charge.
In return we ask you to help spread the material to other NGOs you know – those with no printer or bad phone connections, for example.
Organisations in the North:
Networklearning has no funding. If you work in an organisation with money and use our materials or see their usefulness for others, please make a contribution
(a minimum 4 euros; we will receive the full amount less 5% transaction costs).

CC Attribution NonCommercialOur manuals are copyright-free for non-commercial use. We are happy for users to re-write, translate or otherwise adapt downloaded material to local cultures. The original authors must be mentioned as well as our website.

We are happy to have other organizations link to our library pages, but in order to prevent out-of-date editions being accessed online, we do not allow publications to be posted on other sites without our explicit permission.

Networklearning makes easy-to-use manuals that can help NGOs build knowledge and skills.

To find the titles you need use the "Library Themes" menu at left.

All documents may be freely downloaded subject to our terms of use (see bottom of page).

Difficulty downloading? Let us know the specific problem and we will advise if we can.
