ndian Women and Child Welfare Trust helps village communities run Non-Formal Education Centers to ensure quality education to out of school children. These Non-Formal Education’s also act as sites of providing experience of quality education to communities. These centers are offering education to out of school children.
To identify the progress of a child we have categorized few levels of their learning. The levels are roughly equivalent to government classes. Level 0 is when a child enters the Non-Formal Education and can barely read or write. Level 1 is where she/he can read write small words and does simple counting; identify some numbers. When a child can start reading writing and understanding simple texts, in Mathematics can do basic counting and simple operations like addition and subtraction with small numbers, she is placed in Level 2. At level 3 a child can read, write and understand texts in language and in Mathematics understands concepts of multiplication, division, etc.
Another encouraging news to share with our donors is that the Non-Formal Education teachers (instructors) were given training in October 2019 to teach English language to the children attending Non-Formal Education centers. A team of Indian Women and Child Welfare Trust has recently reported that these instructors have been able to successfully introduce English to these children at Non-Formal Education. The language English has been introduced because there has been a constant demand from the community and the Government Schools (where the children seek admissions after graduating from these Non-Formal Education centers).
