About Us

Literacy India can rightly be synonymized with three very powerful words: Education, Empowerment and Employment. The very essence of Literacy India are these three E’s which are both powerful and paramount in transforming lives!

Literacy India was born in 1996 as a non-profit organization with the objective of educating under privileged women and children, and empowering them to become self-reliant and employable.

The name Literacy India is a misnomer because, although literacy is the predominant initiative of the organization, this initiative is reinforced with a variety of vocational skills and alternative models of education that are relevant, holistic and enriching. Capt. Indrani Singh, who conceptualized Literacy India says,” the idea is to equip underprivileged children and women with basic education and also identify, nurture and develop their latent talent and skills wherein empowering them and increasing their employability quotient”.

VISION

It is Literacy India’s motto to impart basic education to women and children. The emphasis is on providing education not in a typical classroom manner, but to give a child a wider canvas of exposure in a socio-cultural environment. Literacy India envisions to keep its student’s at par with the fast evolving world around them. In line with this thought, Literacy India is looking at transforming the education landscape through exposing the student to a more innovative and non-traditional method of learning. This includes fun activities and workshops on group learning, drama, dance, role plays etc.

Eminent personalities from different walks of life come and interact with the children and prove to be a catalyst to the child’s motivation and enthusiasm to do well. The interest generated in these activities also helps identify talent which, with further guidance can pursue further education or vocational training.

OBJECTIVES

All Literacy India initiatives and programs are envisaged to be innovative, sustainable and replicable in different parts of the country. The primary objectives are:

  • To support children in active schooling to provide minimum levels of learning.
  • To provide women and children with vocational skills.
  • To identify children from under privileged backgrounds and help build their confidence and awareness.
  • To economically empower women from rural and slum areas.
  • To nurture, mentor and assist children to become human resource assets in the community and future role models to many.
  • To improve the self esteem and confidence of both women and kids from the under privileged segment.
