WED Trust runs non-formal education (NFE) centres to cater to children from poor families in 25 villages of Tamilnadu. Access to quality education is limited because (a) of domestic and economic pressures. WED Trust involves local communities in the management of NFEs and trains local instructors. NFEs equip children with essential skills for coping with the challenges of contemporary life.


NFEs run in community halls allotted by villagers. Children are taught by village young men/women the basic numeric & literacy skills. Besides good habits, creative activities, cultural perform techniques and environmental education.

Long-Term Impact

Enabling children to read and write independently with comprehension; Enabling rural communities to experience alternative and meaningful education; empowering communities to demand quality education from the government.
