Informal Education System

The second part of the Khuslen Education project involves older children who have had to drop out of the education system because of poverty. They are often found working at markets, and we have seen several cases where the children are the sole providers for their families. This is a real problem because once they have fallen behind in their grade levels, it is very difficult for them to re-enter the education system.

At the Khuslen Informal Education System we take up to 15 children a year and place them into smaller, more focused classes where they are able to catch up to the grade level of their age group. From there they are able to successfully return to the formal education system and go on from there to vocational college.

The children receive holistic nutritional and health assistance for themselves and their families.

The school is not a destination for students but rather a platform from which they can move forward.
