Though education promotes mankind’s future and the happiness of the people. Experience has shown that its nature has been changing only with the passage of time as well as with place and locations. Education is of special significance for people emerging from long periods of bondage into self-rule and sovereign democracy. Education bears different meanings for different regions and under different policies set-up. While it may mean quite something in rural surroundings and may mean differently in industrialized area, it is also sensitive to the type of political ideology prevailing among the different people even countries with many affinities tend to different substantively in the theory and practice of education. This leads one to the hypothesis that all through there might be something multiple in the broader dimension of education, local demand and local conditions do have their impact and it is certainly not possible to treat education practices as an “importable commodity”. The definition of education, therefore, as a preparation through life comes very true.
Ways to alleviate Illiteracy
Illiteracy is generally referred to as one’s inability to read and write. But illiteracy has more severe impacts than simple lack of education. The effects of illiteracy strongly link to the social stigmas such as child labor, human trafficking, mafia operation, and even the spread of horrible diseases such as AIDS!
Reincarnation Association is committed to alleviate illiteracy through our unique Community Education Center (CEC) program. Unlike the traditional methods of trying to get people to school, Reincarnation Association CEC program takes school to people, providing literacy and knowledge to the most neglected communities, one village at a time. We train and equip child laborers and illiterate adults to re-start a life where they can be contributing citizens.
Reincarnation Association’s literacy program has proved as one of the most effective literacy programs for south Asia, and India because classes are conducted at the local CEC’s which provide the necessary learning environment for the student. As a result, most students cross over the barrier of illiteracy in as short as six months, and are graduated as literates! CEC graduates become eligible to receive tools and support to make a better living.
Every child deserves education. But the fact is that enrollment of students in primary schools is very low. Even if they do enroll the drop out rate is very high. About 40% students don’t continue their studies beyond 5th standard, out of which 66% are girls. In this situation Reincarnation Association comes into action, running free education centers for such dropouts through sustained efforts to bring them back into the education fold. We strive to educate the underprivileged section of the society through formal and non-formal education. Reincarnation Association also imparts technical skills through vocational training institutes, increasing their ability to secure a job and helping India to be a truly developed country. You can also help us in providing education.
