Education not only provides children and families with a pathway out of poverty, but it can also yield even bigger returns for the world’s poorest countries through its impact on areas such as health and the economy. Educated mothers, for example, are more likely to have smaller families, and have their children immunized and send them to school. Education can also provide families and countries with more economic opportunities and help promote the civic participation that is critical to building democracies.

Education is the preparation of the body and the mind for life. It kindles the lamp that guides an individual along the difficult and dark road of life. It equips him with the means of physical existence, spiritual development independent approach and art of living. No doubt education is the key to success both for an individual and a nation.

Basic Education is a fundamental human right. As the key to sustainable development and peace and stability within and among countries, it is an indispensable means for effective participation in the societies and economies of the 21st century.

No doubt education is the real key to success for any Developing Country 

  • Non-formal Primary Education:
Besides a few research and evaluation studies2, there is no regular systematic compilation of statistical or qualitative information on all kinds of non-formal basic education schools (NFBES) and their total enrolment. However, under the Prime Minister’s Literacy Commission project, “Establishment of 10000 Non-formal Basic Education Schools” formulated in 1995, over 7,000 non-formal basic education “home schools” are presently operational, with a total enrolment of 214,000 students.
  • Adult Literacy
The overall literacy rate for the country is only 43.9%, with 54.8% for males and 32.0% for females. Given a limited role of the non-formal basic education schemes, it is not surprising to observe that an overwhelming proportion of the literate population has been trained under the formal system. Statistics also show that rural literacy rates (46.4% for males and 20.1% for females) are much lower than urban literacy rates (70% for males and 55.2% for females). However, as the recent nonformal schemes are focused on females, their contribution towards female literacy is higher than male literacy in rural as well as urban areas.
Aaghhaz Foundation eliminating Factors contributing to the low levels of literacy (and education) include poverty, lack of educational facilities, especially teaching staff; and parental values affected by invisibility of benefits to education. Drop out rates have soared in the recent years also due to high incidence of child labour and high opportunity costs of attending school.

Refection Approach Techniques of Adult Literacy Centers

Reflective practice an allure seductive in nature because it rings true for most people as something useful and informing. However, for reflection to genuinely be a lens into the world of practice, it is important that the nature of reflection be identified in such a way as to offer ways of questioning taken-for-granted assumptions and encouraging one to see his or her practice through others’eyes. Aaghaz foundation used Reflection Approach techniques in Adult Literacy Centers, through capacity building of Teachers.
