The literacy programme is a first-of-its-kind exponentially scalable model which started in 2015 with educating 22 women in Karauni. Soon, these 22 women turned teachers for 180 more women within the first few months. The impact has only escalated from there on and now more than 800 women in Karauni can perfectly read and write, including women above 80 years of age!
“There’s no greater joy than being able to share my knowledge to serve others – whether they be of my own caste, or some other caste, it makes no difference. Even people who have never gone to school don’t have any difficulty learning.”
“The first day only 3 people came (to my classes), but gradually it increased to 15 people coming daily, as they discovered the joy of reading. They initially asked me ‘How much are you earning for this?’, but I explained that I’m not earning anything, I’m just doing it to serve society.”
