About Community Educational Centre Society (CECS)

Community Educational Centre Society (CECS) is an organization that mainly emphasizes working with marginalized children at the grassroots level. The primary focus of the organization is to bring lasting changes and to bring complete transformation in the lives of those children. CECS, in line with such intentions, works in partnership with like-minded organizations and well-wishers for better sensitization and effective implementation of the task. 

The organization has been actively working among child labor and street children since 1999 and was registered in 2008 under the Registration of Societies Act, of 1860 and its registration number is H/RS-4974. As part of its mission, CECS is implementing and monitoring 10 IEMC Centres for Marginalized Children (IEMC) which is supported by WIPRO Cares.

The IEMC project supported by WIPRO Cares developed a revolutionary mode for marginalized and vulnerable children where the project provided a vast array of learning through books, educators, the internet, and other resources compromising classroom-oriented teaching practices. With that, the project has also come up with a vocational training center to further furnish and enhance the skills of the students as part of holistic development. 

The project (IEMC) has established a result-oriented experience through informal education which has proven significant in terms of preventing child labor, child trafficking, home violence, and preventing any form of exploitation.

Learning over the years

CECS as an implementing agency over the years has not only focused on education but also the physical and emotional well-being of the students providing life skill development programs to vocational training enhancing and enabling the children to further furnish their skills in becoming an agent for social transformation.

Reaching out to the unorganized sector of society in bringing about qualitative changes in the lives of children from rag picking to mainstreaming them to formal schooling, giving the organization a whole new level of experience from ensuring, assuring, and providing quality and equality of life and education to the marginalized sector. 


Mainstreaming the Students in Formal school has always been an uphill task as most of the Children belong to migrant families, where parents move from one place to another depending on seasonal work.

Enrolment of students varies alternately as the enrolled students drop out of the school in the middle of the year, thus making it difficult for the student to be traced which lets it fluctuate the number of students enrolment.

Mainstreaming the student has been one of the challenges, as many of the students do not have proper identity proof thus making it difficult for the students to get enrolled in the respective Schools.

Nonetheless, IEMC centers have always been on the brighter side for qualitative change and development in ensuring and assuring the quality of life and education. 

Plan for the next 1-3 years

  • To continue providing non-formal education to marginalised children through the IEMC Project.
  • To organize a week-long program against child labor in all the IEMC centers.
  • Capacity building for educational volunteer and management team on psychological counselling.
  • To ensure and assure the quality of life and education; that every child gets access to education, nutrition, and healthcare.
  • To focus more on life skill development programs to overcome the external and internal barriers of entrepreneurship and maximize the opportunity for experimental learning rather than only educational values.

Capacity Building  

In the coming years, CECS is planning to organize Capacity-building training for the key management staff and for the education team on Resource mobilization, Advocacy, Monitoring & evolution, project management, and result-based management. The training cum workshop will be for three days program.
