Educational  Program

Organization for Peace and Development is has a great concern and interest towards formal and technical (skill) education to orphan and needy children. We believe that education is the basic right of every human being and without education we can not bring a change we wish for.
Therefore, we want to support the orphan and needy children to get education and become a useful and productive citizen of the world. We would like to support them financially for books & stationary, uniform, shoes, fee, and food if necessary. We will also take care for their health and will have proper health checkup twice a year.

We also would like to establish Skill Centre for the boys and girls where they may have an opportunity to become self-reliant. Centre will be fully equipped with the training materials. This will empower the young people to earn and lead prosperous life. We also wish to have a computer centre where youth may have an opportunity to empower themselves with IT skills. This centre can be a source of economic sustainability of the chapter; where as the orphan and needy children/youth will be entertained according to their conditions.
The education awareness building program will be carried out throughout the year by organizing and arranging meeting and seminars with the community and youth of the target areas. This activity will help to assess the interest and need of the community and youth of the target areas.
