Summary

Non Formal Education Centres provide children in remote tribal areas with access to quality education, in an interactive and joyful environment. Children are enabled to join mainstream schools.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Seva Mandir (SM) runs non-formal education (NFE) centres to cater to children from poor tribal families in 583 villages of Rajasthan. Access to education is limited because (a) it is locally unavailable (b) of domestic and economic pressures or (c) it has traditionally not been accorded value. SM involves local communities in the management of NFEs and trains local instructors. NFEs equip children with essential skills for coping with the challenges of contemporary life.

How will this project solve this problem?

NFEs run in rooms donated by villagers (or rented). Children are taught by village young men/women the basic numeric & literacy skills. Besides 3Rs, good habits, creative activities, visits to city/zoo/library are also undertaken.

Potential Long Term Impact

Enabling children to read and write independently with comprehension; Enabling marginalized tribal communities to experience alternative and meaningful education; empowering communities to demand quality education from the government.
