Social institutions and services are seldom as good as they could be and even arrangement that worked well sometimes fail under changing social conditions. Some form of evaluation for improvement is therefore necessary. The ultimate goal of the Non Formal Primary Education (NFPE) programme is to help achieve BRAC's two broad objectives of poverty alleviation and empowerment of the poor. On this reckoning BRAC's education programme is very much closer to social programme, and impact evaluation of the programme is intended therefore to measure the magnitude and the extent to which the programme causes changes in the desired direction in the target population. Moreover, the world. which the NFPE programme is preparing young people to enter, is undergoing continuous and rapid change. Therefore. this type of impact evaluation is essential to understand programme's internal strength in improving learners' ability to adapt with the changing socioeconomic milieu and to measure their anticipated development in the light of the goal set by the programme.
