Dubai Cares worked in the northeastern and southwestern parts of Bangladesh to bring about positive change to the lives of highly disadvantaged children through providing them with access to quality non-formal primary education. The program was based on a curriculum and a methodology, piloted by Dubai Cares’ partner and designed to complement the government system. Complementary education programs provided unique, community-based approaches to the children with little or no access to formal primary schools to obtain educational outcomes, equivalent to students in government schools.

Program activities included:
• Establishment of approximately 1,670, functioning non-formal primary education centers
• Provision of textbooks, teaching and learning materials for these centers
• Training of 3,340 community teachers and assistants from grades one through five, in teaching and learning methodologies, positive discipline and subject content
• Provision of cost-effective health and nutrition interventions for 50,000 children in schools
• Development of manuals on:
(a) Teaching and learning methodologies
(b) School health and hygiene
(c) Flexible and equivalent primary education curriculum
