Adult Literacy Programme
The adult literacy programme is being implemented in seven urban states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Goa, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and West Bengal in collaboration with Tata Consultancy services. The objective of this project is to empower the poor by increasing the adult literacy rate, so that they learn and gain knowledge about the development in the world, country, state and region on various aspects that would help improve their occupation, income and ultimately better quality of life.
