Each of the 210 students at TCEP has a story to tell, but whatever their circumstances, they now have a place where they can receive a formal primary education. TECP is a formal school for slum children and the project runs activities keeping the children at the center. Ensure access to and completion of quality primary education for vulnerable and disadvantaged children. The primary focus of the proposed intervention is to develop children with significant attention to education, in harmony with basic health and nutrition, as well as parental awareness of their children's growth and social issues, with the aim of sustaining the impact. This will contribute to the holistic growth, protection of rights, and development of the children. The project presents a balanced support plan for the beneficiaries throughout the project period. The main objective is to improve the living status of the most disadvantaged and marginalized children in the slums of Dhaka through formal and non-formal education, health care, and psychosocial support.
