Transition: Navigating the Journey to Education and TVET for a Broadened Life Horizon

People in Need

Aarambha aims to enhance the life chances of targeted marginalized girls by providing basic literacy, numeracy, and life skills sessions in non-formal education (NFE) settings specifically through accessible community learning centers (CLCs). Under the project, 462 CLCs were conducted in 21 palikas of Bara and Rautahat, and upon successful completion of accelerated learning courses at these centers, graduates were either able to transition into formal schooling in grades 1 to 9 or get upskilled through market-needed technical/vocational skills with the necessary equipment. Both learning and employability interventions have been successful in addressing early marriage and breaking down harmful social norms. Project cycle data shows that 9,497 OOS girls have been educated on literacy and numeracy skills under the project, with 4,896 successfully transitioning to school and 2,347 to technical and vocational education and training (TEVT). The project has also consistently tracked the learning progress of girls through assessments in both formal education and TVET pathways to ensure positive returns.
