Impact

WESS assistance has been key to education progress over the past 18 years, both in terms of the specific impacts on quality improvement and institutional capacity building. WESS activities have a substantial impact on primary education, enrolment capacities, access and equity aspects.  As a result of WESS interventions, average of 10% increase in each targeted school has been witnessed against the conventional practices. The development of infrastructure facilities and mobilization sessions with parents resulted in 14% control on drop-out ratio against the previous average of 25% in targeted districts. As a result of WESS interventions children participation ratio of targeted school children were observed 75% under different projects/programmes. Teachers training of formal schools in targeted districts resulted in significant contribution to quality education i.e. teachers were trained in different teaching techniques including but not limited to Activity Based Learning, Child to Child Approach, Good Teaching Pedagogies, Use of teaching aid in primary sections and multi grade teaching among others. Provision of reading/writing material with favorable school environment and trained teachers significantly contributed to quality of education in targeted schools. 80% of the established PTSMCs were effectively involved in enrollment campaigns, resource mobilization, school operational plans and operation and maintenance of the school. WESS has provided substantial support for the expansion and qualitative improvement of Basic Education through establishment of NFE (Non formal Education, ECE (Early Childhood Education and TEC (Temporary Education Centers) for working with at-risk children of the targeted districts, where child labor ratio prevailed at higher rate. These centers eventually resulted in mainstreaming of 90% children in formal schools.
