Inventory of Non-Formal Education Providers in Nepal
Abstract:
In Nepal, NFE has been conducting since the initiation of modern education, as an alternative way, to provide educational opportunity to those who could not get education from formal schools and institutes. NFE program in those days was merely reduced to literacy programs. With the change in the development philosophy and strategies, NFE became a powerful vehicle for community and human resource development, empowerment and poverty reduction. So NFE encompasses children, youths and adults; disadvantaged and discriminated as target groups, and offers varieties of programs to these groups in addressing their needs. Similarly, several organizations, government and non-government, from centre to district and local levels included themselves in NFE. Some design and conduct NFE programs while some make resources available for the program. Despite, some organizations conduct research and evaluation whereas some provide policy supports. These efforts, of course, attempt to expand NFE for human development through fostering human skills in areas such as education, social living, health, awareness building, income generation, civic awareness, human rights, and so forth. In designing and conducting the NFE programs and activities, these organizations have used their own approaches, strategies and methods mostly ignoring what the similar kind of organizations have done, or have been advancing their activities. These organizations rarely accredit the significance of sharing, co-operation, and mutual understanding and partnership. #NonformalEducation #Education #ModernEducation #EducationalOpportunity #NFE

These organizations rarely accredit the significance of sharing, co-operation, and mutual understanding and partnership. Maybe these organizations do not know each other and their activities, since there is very little room for them to know each other and share their ideas and experiences. Absence of a forum where they meet, discuss and share the experiences further limits capacity of these organizations to expand their knowledge base and skills required for improving their strategies and methods for program operation.
