At least 35 million children aged between 6 - 14 years of age do not attend school and 53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate. In nearly 60% of schools, there are less than two teachers to teach Classes I to V. Dropout rates increase alarmingly in class III to V, its 50% for boys, 58% for girls and 1 in 40 primary schools in India are conducted in open spaces or tents.
WHAT WE WISH TO ACHIEVE
Having access to free education, the ability to speak and write in English, the world’s primary medium of communication today, can bring about a colossal change in the direction of the lives of underprivileged children, men and women. The ones who are not privileged enough to gain this knowledge, who genuinely want to learn, who don’t get enough family support to go to school, who don’t have the opportunities, are the reason why we wish to empower these sections of society and bring about this change by imparting to them the knowledge that we, the privileged, already have.
