The education scenario in India has seen rapid progress over the last two decades in addressing diverse challenges. School infrastructure has improved. Enrollment in primary schools has also increased to 96%. However, many vulnerable communities still face significant challenges in enrollment and retention. Our interventions focus on vulnerable communities and tackle the challenges like out of school children, poor attendance, and retention. Many children attending are first-generation learners. Their families are not equipped to guide their education at home (78% of rural adults have less than 5th-grade literacy). As a result, teachers become the only source of guidance, thus putting extra burden on the already over-burdened teachers. Education plays an important role in preparing students for successful and productive careers and to make positive contributions to society. The education system must provide the information, skills, and confidence required for students to have productive careers.
The literacy program is a territorial, non‐government an organization with a mandate to promote and support literacy development in Hindi and English languages.
The goal of this project is to develop and deliver a wide range of literacy programs. Building capacity at the local level encourages community development and provides much-needed skills for community members. This project will promote literacy in colonies, develop culturally relevant resources to support literacy initiatives, and provide training to f literacy providers. We plan to work with local people who are interested in running literacy programs or those who can incorporate with this project.
