The project looks to enhance the adult literacy rate in the Nuapada district that stands much below the state average. The proposed district rank very low in terms of literacy – 48.31% compared to the state average of 72.8%. The female literacy in the region is very low at 37.39%. The illiterate mass in the district is 276,444 – persons who are either functionally illiterate or with little writing, reading or numerical ability. 

                               

In this first phase, the project looks to ensure that 72,000 largely tribal and Dalit illiterates of age 15+ years would be functionally literate through technology-based reading, writing, and arithmetic skills provided through short duration classes at 300 community centers in the Nuapada district. The target group would include those who have either not had any education or have dropped out in early classes.

The program looks to engage 300 teachers in as many centers in all five blocks of the district. Each center will be maintained by a trainer who will be training 60 illiterate adults in batches of 30 adults each of the age 15 and above for 3 months with 2 hrs class period a day. The trainer will ensure that the entire identified uneducated adult in the village are covered under the program. The focus will be to cover non-migrant illiterate adults during migration season and migrant communities during no migrating seasons.  Being a tribal-dominated area and with due honor to their traditional practices, the project will look to increase the 50 hrs learning schedule to a complete 3 months training period of 5-6 days class a week.

The project will be implemented for a period of 1 year, post an initial two months which will be utilized in organizational activities and documentation of the process. The training will be conducted in four phases of three months each, within which the expected result of reading, writing, and arithmetical knowledge is gained. Hence there will be four phases of the quarterly training program within the 12 months program implementation period. The program will also cover identification, community sensitization, and awareness activities, and documentation.

In the beginning of the program, based upon primary baseline collected by the organisation and data from different secondary sources, selection of the study centres and the number of adult illiterates who will be selected for the CBFL program will be made. The centres will be so selected that it becomes convenient for the targeted trainees to regularly attend the classes. Sensitisation and awareness drives will be undertaken in the villages through group meetings and IEC/BCC approach.

Once the training program is started, the organisation will look into the monitoring and supervision of the teachers imparting training and the learning improvement of the adults. For regular supervision of the work, the designated supervisors will play a vital role in providing need based inputs, verifying quality of the program, documenting the progress of activities and the learning outcome of the target group. There will be 15 supervisors to look into the project progress in the 300 centres.
