The Dhaka Ahsania Mission (DAM) is a Bangladeshi pro-poor organization that provides education and medical services to adults and children. DAM currently provides education to over 60,000 children in non-formal schools.
The Dhaka Ahsania Mission (DAM) uses non-formal schools to reach out of school children from low-income families in Bangladesh. DAM supports low-income families in predominantly rural areas across 26 districts throughout Bangladesh. The DAM non-formal education model enrolls students and provides five grades of education within four years, with one teacher teaching a class of 30 students in a single classroom school. DAM selects the locations for its non-formal primary schools, or Children’s Learning Centers (CLCs) based on the areas of highest need, and the areas with the least access toeducation.
EAC and DAM have partnered to provide a quality basic education to 40,000 Bangladeshi children who are currently out of school. The partnership will establish and train staff for 1,000 new Children’s Learning Centers in areas of the highest need. The partnership works in the districts of Noakhali, Chittagong, Netokona, Laxipur, and Mymenishgh, which have the lowest levels of education provision.
