Save the Children, Bangladesh retained MTI’s advisory services to review and upgrade the Performance Management System of Underprivileged Children’s Education Program (UCEP) in Bangladesh, which is the single largest NGO in Bangladesh providing basic education integrated with technical and vocational education with subsequent employment support to children and young people from underprivileged families with the ultimate aim of improving the socioeconomic status of the urban poor and supporting industrial growth by generating skilled manpower.

 The purpose of this exercise was to interact with UCEP donors, Board of Governors and senior management along with the teachers and administrative members to review and upgrade UCEP’s Performance Management System to incorporate applicable best industry practices and learning and orient and acquaint staff with the developed system and tools through rollout workshops. 

According to Chief People and Admin Officer Ayesha Parvin Majumder, “MTI Consulting provided a consummate consulting experience for us at UCEP Bangladesh. The MTI team did a commendable job in carrying out a review of UCEP’s Performance Management System. Their sincere responsiveness to our expectations was the topmost amongst the quality features of their service.” 

 MTI’s experience working with the UCEP team was an inimitable one and MTI’s Bangladesh Country Director Saima Mazhar said: “This project gave us a different satisfaction altogether with the realisation being MTI contributing even in a miniscule way towards the development of the Performance Management System for underprivileged children and hence being part of a such a an upright and moral initiative.” 

Founded in 1972, UCEP has since been growing steadily, effectively doubling its enrolment capacity in the last 10 years. A total of 187,490 underprivileged children were admitted to UCEP IGVE schools and the technical schools have produced 47,215 graduates in different trades and around 43,408 of them are placed in different jobs all across the country thus contributing both towards education and employment.
