Adult Literacy

Illiteracy is the root cause for most evils in rural India. Illiteracy amongst adults is particularly important since it breeds superstition, exploitation, abuse, poor health and poverty. Adult illiteracy also acts as a propagator for illiteracy amongst the future generations. By focusing on the menace of illiteracy and taking steps to reduce it, we can significantly change the rural communities, for the better.

In this program, volunteers teach adults basic english and mathematics. Knowledge about various citizen services and rural incentives may also be provided (we will provide the content for the various government services). Volunteers will also engage in discussions with the participating adults re: new technologies, new developments that are happening in India and globally. These discussions will be in very simple and easy to understand language using symbols, charts, pictorials and examples.
