Strategic Partner Meeting on Flexible Learning Strategies to Reach Out-of-School Children in Asia and the Pacific, 14-15 November 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand

04.10.2013

Despite the commitment to providing basic education in developing countries and the substantial strides made towards achieving universal primary education, data show that progress towards providing Education for All has stalled in the past decade. Globally, as many as 57.2 million children were not enrolled in primary and secondary schooling, and as many as 18 million children remained out of school in the Asia-Pacific region (UIS, 2011).

Objectives of the Meeting 

  • To gain an understanding of the various partners’ strategies used for OOSC and share key challenges and lessons learned in the Asia-Pacific region. 
  • To discuss and set strategies to ensure and increase national education budgets for OOSC 
  • To network and to discuss opportunities for effective collaborations between the government and NGOs for OOSC
