Educational Support Program

Education Support Program was formerly implemented as Non Formal Education (NFE) since 1978. The program supported children without access to formal education through sessions run in the timings convenient for the children. NFE program was conducted in four centers in four districts vis-a-vis Dang, Morang, Bhaktapur and Kathmandu. Domestic workers, street children, child laborers etc. participated in those flexible sessions. The goal of this program was to support children with no access to education with free education and bridge the gap in to formal education. The interested children and youths were also provided with scholarships at Sano Thimi Technical School (STTS) of UCEP Nepal for vocational training. Until 2010, it provided education to more than 350 children each year.

With raised awareness in the society in terms of educating their children, the concept of NFE was modified to Education Support Program (ESP) from 2011. It supports the children enrolled in government school through education materials and fees (if required). It identifies needy children and the support provided to them is aimed at preventing school drop-out rate; motivating children to excel in their academia.

Education of children is found to be affected not only by economic conditions of the guardian family but also due to the problems like migration, family breakdown, lack of proper learning environment at home, mandatory to support in household chores etc. Therefore, this program also takes aim at working with guardians and parents for betterment of their children’s education.

Currently, the program is implemented in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Dang, Makawanpur and Morang districts. Three schools from Kathmandu, two schools from Bhaktapur and each school from Dang, Makawanpur and Morang have been supported.
