What is its purpose?

The indicator measures the number and proportion of children actively involved in regular extra-curricular activities, i.e. activities organized before and/or after the school day, or during school holidays, on school premises. Extra-curricular activities (ECA) complement formal education and take the form of tutorials, life-skills sessions (e.g. hygiene promotion or environment), arts, sports or entrepreneurial activities.
