Literacy amongst women is a strong catalyst of development and gender parity in a society. To strengthen the efforts towards making women literate, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Humana People to People India started a partnership in July 2017, for HPPI to implement the Nai Disha programme, using the proven Computer-based Fucntional Literacy (CBFL) model. The project is being implemented in the 10 districts of the states of Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh - namely Ujjain, Khandwa and Dewas (Madhya Pradesh), Alwar and Jaipur (Rajasthan), Mahendergarh and Nuh (Haryana), and Meerut, Allahabad and Gorakhpur (Uttar Pradesh).

Nai Disha

The project aims to train 100,000 women over the course of a year, over four cycles of three months each. During each cycle 25,000 women will be taken through 40 learning modules using laptops, under the guidance of the Preraks (Learning Facilitators). During the first cycle, 25,134 women enrolled in the programme.

In order to amplify the project’s impact on women empowerment, women from destitute and marginalized backgrounds are given priority to be enrolled in the project. Women of all ages are currently represented during the trainings, from girls at the age of 14 to women over the age of 60. Another interesting observations made during the first period of training is that many children attend the literacy classes with their mothers, emphasizing the high possibility of the project impacting children’s learning levels as well.
