Happy school children

Ensuring Inclusive Quality Education

Education is one of our most important means of fighting poverty. It is especially important to give a second chance to girls who have dropped out of school, but also to others who are left out or oppressed, such as marginalised groups, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities.

Ensuring inclusive quality education and Lifelong Learning for disadvantaged groups plays a significant role in community empowerment. The SEEDS program in the Asia Region aims to ensure inclusive, quality, and equitable education for all family members, with an emphasis on children and adolescents.


Early Childhood Development

With local partners working on the ground, we strive to ensure children have access to quality education and learning material.

The importance of early childhood development and preschool activity is made aware to the impoverished people we help—parents of under 5-year-olds, care givers and the local community.


Back to school for dropouts

Catch up school and Bridge School centers in Nepal, Bangladesh, and Myanmar give adolescent school dropouts a second chance at education and life.

Life skills, and the use of textbooks and education materials from the government, help them to catch up on missed school and re-enroll in the formal school system.

Adolescent Empowerment Programme

The adolescent empowerment programme is a youth led development approach which aims to harness the untapped skills of young people. A mindset change helps to change attitudes and behaviors to overcome their situation in life.

Youth are made to realize the strength of collective efforts and form graduate networks to continue work on community development.

You can carry knowledge with you everywhere.

Education builds abilities, skills and knowledge and also contributes to positive changes for the individual and society. Education provides a basis for economic development, knowledge about health and rights, as well as increased self-confidence and unity between people.


Everyone has the right to a good education.

Education is a right in itself, and is absolutely fundamental to moving out of poverty. But enrolling more children into school is not sufficient if they are not learning anything. For this reason, we work towards the UN's Sustainable Development Goal 4 to improve the quality of education.
