Delhi Govt to develop a policy for School Dropouts
NGOs and Corporate Houses can submit their applications to the Education Department by 28th April
NGOs and Corporate Houses will be roped in by the Delhi government to run special training centres for school dropouts to prepare them for age-appropriate mainstream formal education.
The funding for these children (between 6 - 14 years) will be provided under the Universal Elementary Education Mission (UEEM)'s Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.
"Interested NGOs and corporates can submit their applications to the Education Department by April 28, following which visits will be made to the existing facilities to gauge their proficiency," a senior Directorate of Education (DoE) official told Press. "All the proposals received will be screened by the screening committee on the basis of credibility, capability and documents. The recommended proposals will be placed before the competent authority and the grant-in-aid committee for further approval," the official added.
