Global March

Nepal March for Education 2009

South Asia is home about one-quarter of the world’s out-of-school population. India and Pakistan together account for 14 million out-of-school children, with another 2 million in Bangladesh and Nepal according to UNESCO Global Monitoring Report 2009. Only one country, Maldives was close to achieving EFA Development Index (EDI), and five out of the six countries covered in the region – Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal and Pakistan – are far from achieving EFA (EDI values below 0.80) goal by 2015.
