Enable children in the slums of the world get sustainable and high-quality of education at low cost
while creating a strong partnership with the communities involved.
The low cost approach to effective education using high-tech reporting tools deployed at the very basic classrooms at a mass scale is an experiment that DoPeace is employing the very first time. There are more than 10,000 children enrolled every year in the DoPeace Learning Centers in Bangladesh, with total enrollment of 38,000 poorest of the poor children enrolled so far. The model is now proven to work efficiently, and we believe this to be ready for the mass education of children in the slums of the world.
