The objective of the non-formal programs is to create awareness and impart knowledge about health, environment, disaster management,   basic science, agriculture, food, nutrition and other branches of knowledge for human development.

The target groups of these programs are people from all walks of life, particularly those who intend to add further to their professional knowledge and skill without attending any institution or training center. These programs are broadcast at fixed times through the National Television and Radio network.

So far BOU has produced 19 non-formal programs on the environment, basic science, elementary mathematics, agriculture (which include irrigation, water management, horticulture, animal nutrition, pest management, use of aquatic weeds and preparation and preservation of food), bank services and marketing management, health, nutrition, population and gender issues.
