External evaluations and reviews of OELP


 1. A UNESCO Case Study of OELP’s Early Literacy Project

“The programme evaluation processes have revealed that the ELP plays a critical role not only in enhancing the literacy skills of under-achieving school going children but also in providing out-of-school children with an alternative route to accessing basic education. It has also rallied entire communities to support the education of their children and improved the quality of education in resource poor rural schools. In so doing, the programme has played (and continues to play) a critical role in cultivating a culture of learning among disadvantaged communities, all of which promotes social empowerment, economic development and poverty alleviation.”

2. K.B. Rath, 2010, Evaluation of the Early Literacy Project, Regional Institute of Education, Ajmer, Rajasthan, 2010

Conclusions and recommendations – page 118 “The success of the ELP approach can be assessed from the fact that while the target group of children within the two categories i.e the intervention schools and the non-intervention schools, was the same, there has been significant difference in the reading and writing performance in response to different evaluation tasks, with a remarkable improvement in reading and writing skills becoming evident within the intervention or ELP managed schools. This difference can be attributed to the impact of the ELP intervention.”
