Education is ageless. Education is empowerment

According to a pictorial graphic release by United Nations on the occasion of the International Literacy Day on September 8, 2012, India has the maximum number of illiterate adults in the world – a staggering 287 million. While progress has been made in providing education facilities across India, at the grass root level there are many stumbling blocks that range from inadequate infrastructure, teacher-pupil ratio and hygiene facility amongst others.Concern India Foundation supports NGOs working directly at the grassroots level with the economically and socially underprivileged to make education accessible (covering rural, tribal, urban and semi urban areas) and relevant (often tailor-made to suit the need and requirement of the community) to as many as possible.The education imparted by these programmes is in formal, non formal and special learning format.

1. Formal Education

The programmes supported by Concern India Foundation reach out to the rural, semi-rural and urban slum communities to impart structured education to the underprivileged children. These centres are usually in areas where government run facilities are either non-existent or not sufficiently equipped to meet the needs. The programmes work at providing quality education in the English language medium and focus on extracurricular activities for the holistic development of the children. Efforts are also made to curb the drop-out rate through awareness sessions with the parents. This is indeed one of the most pressing requirements in the country today.
