Over the last two decades Bangladesh has made impressive progress in expanding access to education. Primary school enrolments have increased significantly and the gender gap has been eliminated at primary and lower secondary levels. Despite these achievements many challenges persist. High dropout and repetition rates, poor quality of education and prevailing inequalities are the major causes for concern.
A growing number of NGOs engage in ‘non-formal’ education addressed to poor and disadvantaged children, especially girls. NGO activities have been praised internationally for providing ‘second chance’ education to deprived populations and ‘filling gaps’ in the state provision.
The author provides insights into ‘non-formal’ schools and discusses the role of NGOs in promoting gender equality in education in Bangladesh. How can such programmes contribute to securing girls’ rights to, within and through education?
