"The World Learning for International Development division of World Learning develops the skills and potential of individuals and institutions around the world. Its roots are in the multicultural education and training experience of World Learning's oldest divisions, the Experiment in International Living youth learning program, and the accredited college the School for International Training. Today, World Learning for International Development oversees development projects in every region of the world, across five broad sectors: democracy and governance, basic education, training and exchange, institutional capacity building, and societies in transition."
