Non-Formal Primary Education for children
Funded By: BRAC Education Program
Non-formal education became part of the international discourse on education policy in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It can be seen as related to the concepts of recurrent and lifelong learning. Non-formal education is about ‘acknowledging the importance of education, learning and training which takes place outside recognized educational institutions’. Educational institute and program scenarios in developing countries differ from that of developed countries many segments and sectors. Conventional education system could not improve high mortality indices, low literacy rate and poor productivity of the nation. Distance education evolved as the best alternative for alleviating these development barriers. Inadequate infrastructure, poor equipment, less availability of technology transfer and socio-economic insolvency had been identified as the prime factor for lack of education drive among Bangladeshi communities. Our goal is to find the children that can’t pursue education because their families cannot support the finances and aware them about the importance and impact of education. So far, RDA successfully educated 1500 children by operating 50 schools.
