  • Education & Literacy

Education is basic to human development. Only a literate and educated community can help in real progress of society. It not only initiates a person in ‘Reading, Writing and Numeracy’, but also builds personality for an informed society. It also empowers people to create demand for other services, necessary for a decent living.


Poor literacy rates is rightly attributed as the major cause of Socio-cultural and economic backwardness. It vividly shows on poor Human Development indicators. Low literacy status in traditionally disadvantaged sections like SC/ST, EBC, minorities and females also entails extra burden on society as it adversely affects other development and welfare programmes.

Education & Literacy has been integral to Shantidoot’s social development and welfare programmes. The organization has focussed on organizing education & literacy programmes in two ways – focusing disadvantaged sections of society, especially SC/ST, girls, child labours, etc. as well as illiterate adults in rural areas.
