Adult Literacy training Programs and distribution of Educational kits to 3210 learners: vimukti Pothnal

A person who does not know to read and write faces many challenges in life. They are unable to read sign boards, bus destinations, bank transactions, help children in their education etc. they are often cheated in the market place. The person lives with low self-esteem and becomes incapable to defend or speak up in any forum. Illiteracy is a serious challenge in many rural communities of India, where the average literacy rate is around 65% which is far below the nation average of 74 %( Census2011). The low functional literacy continues to be a great challenge and hinders development in any form. As a strategy, vimukti Pothnal strives to reach the most marginalized communities in society; thus this project has reached some of the most backward and disadvantaged villages of Manvi taluka. More than 91% of those reached are from SC, ST, OBC and minority communities. 20 facilitators in 20 villages were directly involved in steering the project at the grass root level. The project used computer based functional literacy software, a laptop, two speakers, one projector and UPS. Month of November 580 learners appeared for an internal test to assess their learning and learners appeared for the exam conducted by national institute of Open Schooling in collaboration with Saakshar Bahrath Mission. The project area is Urban and Slum area of Manvi town and Education kits like note books, pencils, pens black board color pencils etc were provided to the beneficiaries during the training.
