|Assessment of CfPs for SHARE / Bangladesh - Supporting the Hardest to Reach through basic Education programme|
|Period:||May - July 2011|
In order to reach the Millennium Goal of Universal Primary Education by 2015, Bangladesh needs to continue with an expansion of the formal education system while at the same time building on non-formal education services provided by NGOs and local communities complementary to the government’s primary education services It is important to note that over the past few years, progress has been achieved in the communication and collaboration between the government and the NGOs providing education services in Bangladesh. NGOs work successfully in these areas not yet covered by government schools and where an expansion of the formal primary education system comes with a diminishing margin of efficiency. In view of this the SHARE programmes hae been designed. The major thrust of this programme SHARE- Supporting the Hardest to Reach through basic Education programme is to provide quality primary education for the hardest to reach children. Additionally, the programme is designed to make a modest contribution to adult education, with a focus on literacy, numeracy and family life skills; to pre-primary education, which is widely recognised as a necessary tool to prepare children of poor and illiterate parents for primary school; and it allows for educational support to low-performing vulnerable children at government schools. The programme has been designed on the basis of previous experience with the EC-funded Non-Formal Primary Education programme and lessons learnt
