Abstract
The Lifelong Learning for Farmer's (L3F) project of Commonwealth of Learning (COL) is seen as a livelihood promotion and poverty alleviation strategy for India and the rest of the developing countries. This is because of its positive impact on the learners’ standard of living through improved net returns of the projects with high rate of expansion of livelihood enterprises within a short span of time. Further, the project has demonstrated the very high rate of social returns along with increasing demand for L3F types of initiates also from the non-participants.
