Challenge

Tribals Districts of Odisha have some of the lowest literacy rates in India. Despite schools in almost every village, learning levels are dismal. Thousands drop out of 5th, 6th, 7th having learnt little, others come out of high schools barely able to read. As tribal parents themselves have no school education, they are unable to monitor the progress of their children neither are they able to afford private tuition. This perpetuates the poverty-illiteracy-poverty cycle

Solution

The project will expand its established model of innovative and creative education for first generation school children. This will be through training and supportive teaching learning material, in the form of fun and engaging workbooks, and story cards, charts, and rhyme books. The project will work with Government Schools and Primary Education Departments

Long-Term Impact

The project will help poor tribal villages have a first generation of literates and educated youth, who will be able access written information and news, helping the fight exploitation, actively participate local governance, understand their rights, demand justice, specially for women, and improve their livelihoods and incomes. It will help break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy and facilitate socio-economic progress.
