Non-Formal Education Uganda.


Non-formal education is provided to youth who missed the chance to go to regular primary schools for various reasons such as economic and environmental difficulties, as well as political conflict mainly in the northern part of the country.
The programme targets youth in pastoral and fishing communities, those engaged in child labour and those living in conflict and hardship areas.
There are a number of initiatives by the government, civil society, religious groups and development agencies.
  Some of these initiatives are:  Alternative Basic Education for Karamoja (ABEK), Complementary Opportunities for Primary Education (COPE), Basic Education for Urban Poverty Areas (BEUPA), Child-centered Alternative Non-Formal Community Based Education (CHANCE), Empowering Lifelong Skills Education in Masindi (ELSE).  There are 70,140 learners enrolled in the NFE programmes - 32,390 makes and 37,750 females. 
Other interventions to support NFE are:
  • Provisions of grants to enable NFE centers acquire facilities and instructional materials.
  • Recruitment of instructors and putting them on the government's payroll.
  • Developing training modules NFE teachers and instructors.
