District Education Office (DEO) officials from six districts have now been oriented to use the Non Formal Education Management Information System Software (NFEMIS) through a workshop organized by the UNESCO Office in Kathmandu jointly with the Non-Formal Education Center (NFEC) on 22 May 2014 in Kathmandu.

The workshop was aimed to familiarize DEO officials with the forms published to collect the data on Non-Formal Education and the process to enter the form in the new developed software. The NFEC is presently piloting the use of this software in six districts namely Dhankuta, Makawanpur, Chitwan, Nawalparasi, Surkhet, and Bardiya. It is believed that the use of NFEMIS will help in consolidating the data and building uniformity in all the districts. The results of these districts will guide the implementation of this programme in other districts.

In the programme, software developer  Sambedan Koirala made a presentation on the usage and steps of data entry in the software. The participants first learnt to fill four types of forms and later performed the data entry in the software. The procedures of NFEMIS, its importance, and difficulties were also discussed and the participants expressed their commitment in accomplishing the mission of the project.

Babu Ram Poudel, Director of the NFEC, Dinesh Ghimire, Deputy Director of the NFEC and Tap Raj Pant, National Programme Officer of the UNESCO Office in Kathmandu also participated in the workshop. A brief discussion took place among the participants on the effective implementation of this project. The feedbacks were shared considering the previous ground based project work.
