GLOBAL GIVING REPORT
HALF-YEARLY REPORT- APRIL 2019-SEPTEMBER 2019
The six months report will provide comprehensive progress of the program ‘Adult Literacy’. We are delighted to present the compelling results, and how the voyage of the beneficiaries has been extremely incredible and inspiring.
Prior to enrollment in the program, beneficiaries were incapable of even holding a pencil properly. Beneficiaries were unable to perform basic day-to-day activities with ease such as signing requisite documents, helping children with studies, reading bus numbers, and exchanging money from the vendors. Most importantly, beneficiaries were ashamed of putting thumb impressions in their children's report cards and signing vital documents.
After the enrollment in the program, beneficiaries eventually learned how to read and write basic Hindi and Arithmetic. Now, they are able to perform all the activities effortlessly and with no difficulty and trouble.
We are very much aware of the fact that private hospitals charge expensive fees for various basic tests and medication. The major reason behind the medical health camps is to provide the destitute community with free tests and low-cost medication. They don’t have to travel to distant places for minor checkups. The basic tests conducted by the medical health camps are Blood Pressure (BP), Cold and Flu, Iron deficiency, Calcium, Fever, Bodyweight, etc.
The below table indicates the total number of medical camps set up in the following months:

IMPACT OF THE PROGRAM
Any program is unsuccessful until and unless the output is fruitful development.
We are grateful to share with you the progress of the program.
The enrolled beneficiaries at our program did not know how to read and write basic Hindi and Arithmetic. In the duration of six months, beneficiaries have learned counting’s from 1 to 100. Besides, they are able to understand the words of Hindi.
Beneficiaries can now read and write the bus numbers, mobile numbers, names of their family members, address, and signing requisite documents.
The process of learning to read and write inculcates confidence, and empowerment in them. They are not shy to move out of their homes and can travel to distant places without any fear & hesitation.
‘Educating a woman will lead to many more advantages as compared to male counterparts. An educated woman is an asset for a country’s economic growth, decreased child and mother mortality rates, encouragement of human rights, delayed marriages, and early pregnancies, promotion of good health and the list is endless.
