The UNESCO Office in Kathmandu in collaboration with the Non-Formal Education Centre (NFEC) organized a three day workshop from 2 to 5 August 2014 in Bharatpur, Nepal. Twenty two representatives from six districts, NFEC staff, members of Education and Federalism Support Groups, software developers and UNESCO staff participated in the workshop.

The objective of the workshop was to enter non-formal education statistics collected by six district education offices of  Dhankuta, Makawanpur, Chitwan, Nawalparasi, Surkhet, and Bardiya districts. The Non Formal Education Management Information System (NFEMIS) software was developed by a consultant in corporation with UNESCO and the NFEC. The use of NFEMIS will help to develop institutional mechanisms to strengthen data systems and to keep efficient track record of literacy statistics. This in turn will help in implementing non-formal education plans and programmes.

Babu Ram Poudel, Director of NFEC in the presence of Khadga Bahadur Kamal, District Education Officer of Makwanpur and Damodar Sharma, District Education Officer of Chitwan and Tap Raj Pant,  National Programme Officer of UNESCO  plans to prepare a report entitled “Non-formal education statistics report: achieving literacy for all”. The report will be launched on the International Literacy Day on 8 September 2014 which will guide other districts for piloting NFEMIS data collection and entry.
