In order to ensure the rights to primary education enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Save the Children Japan (SCJ) launched ‘Getting Children Out of Work and Into School’ Project in Dhanusha and Mahottari districts for three years since November 2003 in partnership with JICA and Aasaman Nepal. The project greatly helped in ensuring access to education by increasing the primary school enrolment rate from 64 to 81 percent. The main objectives are to strengthen participatory planning and management in schools; promote inclusive quality education for all children; and promote social norms to protect all children from all forms of violence.
