Provide Literacy Education to Dalit/Untouchable Girls

Bitcoin Enpact - 365 days of access to literacy education to dal

Impact Level

Provided funding for 365 days of access to literacy education to dalit girls

Project managed by: Academy of Root Development

Country: India

Project Description

Give illiterate adolescent Dalit girls access to literacy education. These girls come from the poorest families, are aged between 13 to 19 years old and belong to the group of the Dalit or the Untouchables, a repressed group in India. They have been taken out of the education system to help work on the land, or in other ways earn money for their family. Learning to read and write will open up many opportunities in their life. Your help provides the wages of a teacher, provision of teaching materials and upkeep of the literacy centre to support these girls.

More About This Project

Academy of Root Development has established 8 Literacy Centre in remote village areas since joining B1G1. Each Literacy Centre provides daily lessons for 20 girls. Classes are held in the middle of the day, to allow the girls to complete their morning and evening tasks without posing any disruption to their studies. The centre has enabled these girls, whose parents do not necessarily value education, to have access to education.

Dalit, meaning ‘broken/scattered’ in Sanskrit and Hindi, is a term mostly used for the ethnic groups in India that have been kept repressed. Dalits were excluded from the four-fold varna system of Hinduism and were seen as forming a fifth varna, also known by the name of Panchama.
