Millennium Fellowship Project: I=E^2+R
“If you are planning for year, sow rice; If you are planning for decade, plant trees; If you are planning for lifetime, educate people.” As per the 2011 Census, India’s literacy stands at 75% and that's quite sluggish when compared to other countries that got Independence in similar era. Odisha, a state in Eastern India had its rate below the national average and this is just a small part of the bigger picture. Future starts with the learning of alphabet; Such low literacy figures call for immediate action. Our project aims to help rural communities that host skilled and talented indigenous masses who are yet to see best of the world. And this starts with connecting people from remote parts via digital meetings with Panchayats and local leadership (and in-person when situations permit). Students in villages aren’t able to decide their field of study owing to lack of guidance. Few sessions every month will help them realize their inner potentials to march ahead for secured future through education. Another wing of our project will help deprived people to lead righteous life by eliminating issues of hunger, poverty and sanitation as Equality and Rights are equally essential along with Education.
