IPER believes that

  • EDUCATION is the most powerful tool for all development & strength
  • EDUCATION and Quality Education is the Right of Every Child

IPER, a premier organisation with the disadvantaged population especially children and women for more than four decades in the city of Kolkata and around, has launched and completed a number of projects on education. Working in the field of education IPER felt that the major victim of education given in the schools is its quality which affects the learning of children and curbs retention. The girls are doubly disadvantaged. One for their gender and other for being the hidden work force within the home and community. The ultimate result is that the schools are often pushing the children out from the education system rather than pulling them in.
To address these IPER initiated programme on training of teachers, school administrators on quality, materials and participatory teaching-learning processes. IPER also supplements the educational programme with such support as health-care, nutrition, economic skill training, life skill training, computer skills and recreational facilities.
