Second Chance Education (SCE) is piloted on July 18, 2017, in the Directorate of Primary Education, Dhaka. Dr. Md. Abu Hena Mostafa Kamal NDC, Director General of the Directorate of Primary Education (DPE) formally launched the program.

A total of 100,000 out-of-school children aged between 8 and 14 from 3 districts will be enrolled under Second Chance education.
