Challenge

Illiteracy is big problem in India and more in slums. Women population constitutes a larger portion of total illiterate population. In India, the female literacy rate is around 65 percent as against the male literacy rate of around 82 percent. Hence, women education is very important to eradicate illiteracy. This low female literacy is also responsible for the dependency of women on men for activities which requires them to read and write.

Solution

we are giving education to the females who never get chance to study. At our 371 Women Literacy centers, 21,930 illiterate adult women would be taught Hindi, Arithmetic and a vocation with the help of Computer based functional Literacy Software. To start a centre, a lady from the community is selected and given training. Her jhuggi/Home serves as a class room for the women beneficiaries of the area. Hence, the system provides a suitable space for illiterate women in their own atmosphere.

Long-Term Impact

Our Mission is to bring Happiness & Joy in the lives of the Disadvantaged and Marginalized section of society. Maximize the Eradication of Illiteracy through Computer Based Program. Create Awareness about Hygiene, Health and Safety. Support Women of Disadvantaged Communities to gain Confidence, Respect and Honour in the society. Engage with other Organizations for Transforming Lives of the Underprivileged Women
