Education for Out of School Children in Bangladesh
The project has two main objectives:
re-launch 575 unused schools to provide primary education to a total number of 104,700 OOSC and strengthen and develop the schools’ overall communications, documentation and management capacity. To do this, GSS will repair and re-launch 575 three-room GSS schools; recruit and train 1,800 teachers; recruit and train 200+ supervisory staff; form 575 School Development Committees (SDCs) and facilitate meetings; provide new textbooks and course materials for students; review and refine curriculum and materials for grades 1-5; and achieve over 86% of learner excellence in the key competencies. This will require hiring program administration staff, forming a secretariat to conduct fundraising and to maintain stakeholder relationships, recruiting new management staff at the headquarters, and delivering major workshops on primary education capacity building annually.
