Millennium Post - - CITY -

NEW DELHI: In bid to curb dropouts in Delhi gov­ern­ment schools, the gov­ern­ment has in­vited pro­pos­als from NGOS and corporates to run spe­cial train­ing cen­tres for out-of­school chil­dren and dropouts to pre­pare them for age-ap­pro­pri­ate main­stream ed­u­ca­tion.

The fund­ing for these chil­dren (in the age group of 6 to 14 years) will be pro­vided under the Uni­ver­sal El­e­men­tary Ed­u­ca­tion Mis­sion's (UEEM) 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 of­fi­cial of the Direc­torate of Ed­u­ca­tion (DOE) said.

“All the pro­pos­als re­ceived will be checked 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.
