 Workshop for Strengthening of
Child Protection System


540 Adult Literacy Learners received Educational kits in Second level of training held to make Sustainable in Rural Communities: Vimukti Pothnal
“Literacy is the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate and compute using printed and written materials associated with varying contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning in enabling individuals to achieve their goals, to develop their knowledge and potential, and to participate fully in their community and wider society,” A person without functional literacy has to face numerous challenges right from household chores to social life, and can end up having a low self- esteem or being incapable of speaking for him or herself. This ultimately leads to a lack of confidence and a low level of productivity. Raising literacy rates is one of the biggest challenges in rural communities today. This forms the backdrop to the adult literacy programme implemented by Vimukti Charitable trust, Pothnal.

“Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and Girls” vimukti pothnal
VIMUKTI Pothnal organized training on gender Equality and Empowerment of women and Girls at vimukti premises on 20th June 2019. Mr. Charlie the campaign facilitator explain in length by saying, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment are today accepted as vital development objectives, crucial for the realization of human rights and key to effective and sustainable development outcomes. The male female ratio though improved over last few years is still far from satisfactory. The female literacy rate is also lower than the male literacy rate. In spite of reservation being granted to women in Panchayat elections after 73rd and 74th Constitution amendment, in many Panchayats the male chauvinism does not allow them to function independently. Socio-cultural norms and practices limit the accessibility to capacity building opportunities that are there for women, which can address the various issues that have long kept them and their communities underdeveloped and poverty stricken.
