Education Program and Scholarship
IDF has been implementing Child Labour and Non-Formal Education component since 1994. The main objectives of this program are:
- Raise awareness on child rights and education;
- Provide basic education (read, write and count) to poor children who are dropped-out;
- Provide tuition/coaching support to poor student to prevent drop out.
IDF runs two types of education centres. In one type, education is provided up to class II level. Free education materials including books and writing materials are provided to the students. In other type, tuition services are provided to the students to prepare school lessons for the following day.
The present status of the program is shown in Table 19.
