What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The project is located in and around Delhi, with the objective of teaching illiterate women functional literacy in 180 hours, and a vocation and awareness of basic healthcare. Benefits accruing to the women are a better quality of life, lesser exploitation and encourages them to send their children to school

We are running 14 centres which are located in slums in and around Delhi, India. The centres teach Hindi through a computer based functional program developed by TATA Consultancy Services, and do not need a teacher.

The project is very easy to scale up as cost of starting a centre is practically nil. Our objective is to eradicate illiteracy in India
