Subject : A report on the recently held literacy program
during April - June 2014
As per the governments initiative, we have conducted the literacy
program in the state in major towns and about 50 villages in each mandal. We
could arrange teachers and students from various schools who volunteered to do
the literacy drive. We had campaigned for literacy among the poor children and
adults. All the adults were informed by the village heads.
During April to June, we conducted the camps for one week at each center. The
children were taken to the government school in the morning and they were
taught how to read and write Hindi and local language. They were also taught
numbers and simple arithmetic. The elderly and adults were grouped in the evening
and were taught to read, write and perform arithmetic. We had offered them
simple colorful books and gave them breakfast, lunch and dinner.
It was a successful campaign as most of the children and adults were able to
perform good in the sample test. The success of this program goes to the madal
authorities, district officials and local authorities who brought the people
together for so many days, in spite of hot Sun. Students and teachers were
accommodated in official guest house and shared among the famous families in
the villages. They also enjoyed their work. All in all, about 20,000 children
and 20,000 adults were made literate.
We would like to continue this in the next summer too. That will make our state
and the country illiterate-free in near future.
