Lets start with some scary statistics:
- State with highest literacy rate : Kerala (89.8)
- State with lowest literacy rate : Bihar (38.5)
- District with highest literacy rate : Kottayam, Kerala (95.7)
- District with lowest literacy rate : Jhabua, Madhya Pradesh (19.0)
We had to do something to change these numbers… and so we started project Titli (Butterfly).
In our Titli programme we have over 200 children who are educated free of cost. We provide them with all the books, stationery and periodic health check-ups as well. They have a fully equipped class-room and most of them enjoy being able to sit under a fan in this scorching heat for the 2 hours that they are in school. We encourage them to take part in all extra-curricular activities like singing, dancing and art – which whilst might be the norm to other kids, is totally alien to these children.
We have activities all the year round for our Tilti students.
