Non-governmental organisations work at the grassroots level to help underprivileged children access quality education. India is a vast country with a huge demographic and geographic divide, and NGO’s play a key role in bringing people together. NGOs working for education in India, like Oxfam India, play an important role in supporting the most vulnerable children access their Right to Education through innovative ideas such as forming student groups and child-tracking system, holding awareness workshops with parents to ensure that they send children to school and form parent committees to esure that schools are run properly.
Education is a pillar of every country in the world. Through education, literacy levels go high, and human resources are enhanced. Because of the needs of the education sector, most governments engage with NGOs in meeting their needs. This makes the process sustainable, by bringing together all the stakeholders, including then civil society.
Among other things, NGOs are a source of expertise in the education sector. Since NGOs are ran by people with professional skills and specialized people on board, they can use this capacity empower the sector. In some cases, NGOs establish colleges for teacher and other personnel that work in schools. This is a complement as most governments especially in the developing world experience high rates of shortage of teachers. By training teachers, NGOs also help the government to cut down on its expenditure of either building more training facilities or outsource services.
