Non Formal Education Centers (Community Schools) provide children in remote tribal areas with access to quality education, in an interactive and joyful environment. Children are enabled to join mainstream schools. Seva Mandir runs non-formal education (NFE) centres to cater to children from poor tribal families in 600 villages of Rajasthan. At present Seva Mandir runs 171 NFEs.
Access to education in these remote areas is limited because
(a) it is locally unavailable
(b) of domestic and economic pressures or
(c) it has traditionally not been accorded value.
Seva Mandir involves local communities in the management of NFEs and trains local instructors. NFEs equip children with essential skills for coping with the challenges of contemporary life, enabling children to read and write independently with comprehension; Enabling marginalized tribal communities to experience alternative and meaningful education. Till now Seva Mandir has helped provide education to 35,000 children in the tribal areas
A tribal child will attain quality education for a month who would have otherwise have had no other alternative in the remote hilly terrain of Southern Rajasthan. The child will be able to learn to read and write along with doing basic math calculations, which would not have been possible had it been not been for the Non Formal Centers.
The project can be visited throughout the year on weekdays from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. It takes approximately an hour from Udaipur to reach the school. Please contact Ms. Aarti Shah at +91 992 8888 588 or [email protected] if you would like a field visit to be arranged.
