NETZ is active in the education sector in Bangladesh since 1991. During the last 10 years the Education Programme of NETZ was systematically further developed – with a focus on quality education and child-centred teaching methods for children from the poorest families and of marginalised groups, such as indigenous and religions minorities. Especially these girls and boys are excluded from the public education sector and do not receive any primary education. Furthermore, the quality of the education in public schools – where one teacher is often responsible for 60 up to 100 students – is often so poor, that children hardly learn anything. The poorer the family, the more important become the reasons why children do not continue or even start their education at school. Therefore NETZ considers quality primary education a key factor for sustainable development and empowerment – an integral part of our non-violent fight against poverty.
At a glimpse: NETZ Education Programme
At 393 primary schools, NETZ and our partner NGOs are active: in remote, poverty prone areas in northern Bangladesh. Here 34,315 girls and boys have access to quality primary education and learn the basic skills for a brighter future.
At present the Education Programme of NETZ is implemented in 8 districts of Bangladesh. NETZ and our partner NGOs ensure the fundamental right to education of the children from the poorest families through an integrated approach – tailored to the needs of the respective communities.
