DDEF focus is to provide access to quality education to the children in disadvantaged Costal and tribal areas through highly effective education interventions. Children are enabled to continue their education, having become confident, independent learners. DDEF approach includes mainstreaming children through bridge schools and strengthening government schools therefore, increasing their chances of retention.

Access to education in these areas is limited (a) because it is often locally unavailable, (b) because of domestic and economic pressures forcing children to work, (c) because Government schools are far and lacks proper facilities, and (d) because it has traditionally not been accorded value. Nearly half of rural children in our area are out of school, and literacy levels are around just 43%.


DDEF runs bridge schools to mainstream out of school children; and strengthens Government schools by improving infrastructure and building capacities of teachers to offer quality education and ensure retention of children in the schools. Every year, DDEF benefits 5,000 children across 60 rural villages. Children are equipped with essential life skills for coping with the challenges of contemporary life along with learning literacy & numeric skills, & about hygiene and environment.

Long-Term Impact

Improving chances of a bright future for tribal-costal children by providing them an opportunity to continue their education; enabling marginalized tribal communities to experience alternative and meaningful education; empowering communities to demand quality education from the government.
