  • Title: Evolution of UCEP : Underprivileged Children's Educational Programs || UCEP - Bangladesh ||
    Descriptive info: Introduction Evolution of UCEP.. The Underprivileged Children's Educational Programs (UCEP) is a leading national non-government organization of Bangladesh.. It strives to inculcate marketable skills among the hardcore poor urban working children and adolescents through Integrated General and Vocational education followed by Technical Education and on the job apprenticeship in close collaboration with potential entrepreneurs and enterprises / industries throughout Bangladesh.. The origin of Underprivileged Children's Educational Programs (UCEP)- Bangladesh is connected with a philanthropic New Zealander, Lindsay Allan Cheyne.. Mr.. Cheyne came to Bangladesh on a British relief mission in 1970 to run a mother and child health clinic for the millions of tornado hit distressed families in the south-eastern part of the country.. Chyene had just completed establishing the clinic when the 1971 war of independence broke out and Bangladesh was born.. The destruction in the wake of the tornado paled beside the tragedy of human misery left by the war, and the new nation faced ever-greater crisis than before.. Along with his relief operation duties, Cheyne worked with the Directorate of Social Welfare in planning an educational program for the underprivileged, homeless, poor children.. Cheyne went to work finding a sponsor.. The Danish government responded to the appeal of Mr.. Cheyne and extended generous financial assistance to launch a 3-year project.. The government of Bangladesh provided a building  ...   order to make UCEP approach more useful and effective, skills training opportunities were added to UCEP's general education in 1983 with the establishment of one Technical School in Dhaka.. By that time UCEP's general education program had been expanded to the Chittagong and Khulna cities.. UCEP was reorganized in 1988 and got itself registered as a national NGO under the Voluntary Social Welfare (Registration and Control) Ordinance, 1961.. Beginning in 1972 UCEP has been able to progress steadily.. By now it has grown into an established NGO having 53 general schools and 10 Technical schools located in Dhaka , Chittagong , Khulna, Rajshahi, Sylhet, Barisal and Rangpur Division and Gazipur District.. During the period 1972 December 2011 UCEP extended support service to as many as 1,87,490 poor urban working children who enrolled as student in UCEP education system.. Out of them 47,215 students completed technical education at UCEP technical schools and para-trade centres.. The major fields, where UCEP trained hands are working, include automobile (repair, operation and maintenance), garments making, electronics (assembling and repair), printing and packaging, electrical, air conditioning and refrigeration (installation, repair and maintenance), textile (spinning, weaving and knitting), Aid to Nurse etc.. At present, a total of 45,000 children are pursuing Integrated General and Vocational Education at the UCEP Integrated General and Vocational Schools and Technical Schools..

  • Title: UCEP Approach : Underprivileged Children's Educational Programs || UCEP - Bangladesh ||
    Descriptive info: Introduction UCEP Approach.. Child Labour in recent years specially after the CRC of 1990 has become a sensitive issue both in the developed countries where it is nearly non- existent and the least developed countries where it is abundant.. The former equipped with CRC is exerting immense pressure on the later to eliminate child labour in their midst.. The fact, however, remains the least developed countries are not in a position to eliminate child labour overnight as it is an  ...   labour is inevitable and has to be tolerated.. On the contrary, it can be eliminated only when the factors causing child labour are identified and removed.. Two important factors known to be the cause of child labour are: poverty and illiteracy, not necessarily in that order.. UCEP believes and has demonstrated with documented case histories that by providing education, skill training and employment support child labour can be eliminated in future generations.. This is the philosophy that drives UCEP forward..

  • Title: Integrated General & Vocational Education : Underprivileged Children's Educational Programs || UCEP - Bangladesh ||

UCEP currently operates 53 integrated general vocational schools (feeder schools) in urban slums of which 15 are in Dhaka, 05 in Gazipur, 10 in Chittagong, 06 in Khulna, 05 in Rajshahi, 04 in Sylhet, 04 in Barisal and 04 in Rangpur.. UCEP feeder schools follow the curriculum and textbooks prescribed by the National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) incorporating basic elements of technical education and provide basic education up to Grade VIII.. The prime objective of the IGVE curriculum is to prepare the students to follow a high quality of technical education.. A total of 40,530 students, 50% are girls attend the UCEP-Non-formal basic education.. The service of UCEP is meant for the poor working children living in urban slums.. The major categories of such children are domestic servants, hawkers, factory workers, shop-assistants, rag pickers, porters and day laborers.. A specific needs assessment of each individual child to the school is conducted during the pre-admission period through home working place visits and interviews with the children and their families/employers.. Divisions.. UCEP Schools adhere to the following strategies making them unique by design :.. Working While Learning.. The Children continue to work and earn while they attend school.. UCEP schools operate 3 shifts a day, each of 3 hours duration having 4 lessons per day.. This allows a child to choose a shift of his/her convenience in consultation with his/ her parents employer/guardian; so that economic loss for the children attending school is not regarded by their family as a prohibitive one.. Shortened School Year.. UCEP runs two academic sessions in a calendar year, each of six months, having 120 schooling days per session.. In practical term, this means, a child can complete 2 grades in a given year enabling him/her to complete grade VIII in 4½ years, including six months of pre-technical schooling after completing Grade-VIII.. Abridged Curriculum.. The UCEP schools basically follow the NCTB curriculum both at  ...   that the women are lagging far behind men.. School Environment.. UCEP Schools are safe with spacious well-built classrooms, separate toilets for girls and 30 students class size.. Each school has a welcoming, healthy, and clean environment and a steady supply of clean, safe drinking water.. All children protect from harms, violence and abuses.. Learning Environment.. A child-friendly learning environment is created inside the classrooms by providing congenial learning environment (sufficient lights, ventilation, fans) and gender-fair and non-discrimination.. Teaching-learning process.. A classroom-based approach requiring completion of all educational work at the school and not expecting homework from the children is another innovational feature of the curriculum.. All lessons are taken preparing lesson plans using appropriate teaching aids.. Children are grouped with diversified ability for ensuring their participation in every lesson and the effective use of time.. Children with learning difficulties have opportunities to review lessons.. Social work supports.. UCEP teachers are trained in social work based on the specific needs of the target group.. Social work starts during the pre-admission period in order to ensure the adjustment of the children to the school environment.. Throughout the school program, UCEP teachers maintain close contact with the families and employers of the students and with the community through regular visits and meetings.. As a measure to prevent student s tendency to dropout and keeping the attendance rate high dropouts, UCEP teachers conduct home visits and follow up when a student remain absent for two-three consecutive days.. Children s Council.. Children councils are functioning in all schools.. The executive committee members of the councils are elected through democratic process to ensure child participation in the education process, school and classroom management.. It gives opportunities to demonstrate their capacity to plan, organize and implement activities, to access information and to express their needs.. Children s Library.. Children’s library exits in each school to encourage the students to read books and gain knowledge.. :.. Programs.. IGVE.. Credit For Self Employment.. Child Woman Rights Advocacy..
