To this end, a descriptive survey method was employed.

Two woredas were selected by using purposive sampling technique and two IFAL centers were selected by using simple random sampling. The instruments used to collected data were: 1) questionnaire 2) interview, 3) focus group discussion 4) document analysis and 5) Observation check list. Two separate set of questionnaires were prepared to be completed by IFAL facilitators and IFAL learners. The interview was employed to the supervisors, School directors, Woreda education experts and Kolfe keranyo focal persons. The findings from data analysis showed that some of the IFAL program was affected by: Shortage of allocated budget to implement and develop the program successfully, lack of practical stakeholder’s participations and involvement in the IFAL program, low attention given to the program in providing supervision and support, assignment of untrained facilitators, unavailability of learning materials and poor understanding about IFAL program. Therefore , to alleviate these problems, allocation of necessary budget and mobilization of resources by using different mechanisms such as fund raising from communities and different non-government bodies, encouraging IFAL Stakeholders participation building their capacity, Training of Facilitators, improving the amount of their payments and solving their housing problems, developing relevant IFAL curriculum, constructing IFAL centers equipping with the necessary educational materials and facilities, developing learners attitudes and interest towards the program were suggested.
