LITERACY

Adult Literacy Program
For the millions of Indian adults struggling to free themselves from the web of illiteracy, TCS’ Adult Literacy Programme (ALP) offers a crucial second chance at attaining freedom and empowerment. According to the 2011 census, India has over 287 million illiterate adults who don’t know how to Read, wRite and perform basic aRithmetic (the three R's) and thereby have no means to contribute towards its increasingly growing knowledge-based society. In order to provide an impetus to the Government of India’s endeavours to tackle the mounting problem plaguing the nation, TCS set up its Adult Literacy Programme (ALP) in the year 2000.
Using scientific understanding of cognition and perception, the Computer-based Functional Literacy (CBFL) solution uses animated graphic patterns to facilitate visual and auditory learning to enable non-literate adult learners above the age of 15 years to achieve functional literacy in their native language in approximately 50 learning hours. CBFL is currently available in nine Indian languages, 2 African tribal languages and Arabic. TCS works closely with governments at the state and district levels, NGOs and corporates to implement CBFL in the local language as a supplement to their Adult Literacy Programmes, and helps in their deployment as well. Supplementary content is sourced from reference textbooks or primers from the National Literacy Mission (NLM). As of September 2018 an overall total of 7,58,376 persons have been made literate through the programme.
Digitizing the Literacy Movement
TCS uses its expertise in Information Technology to conceptualise and develop Computer Based Functional Literacy (CBFL), a cost-effective and cutting-edge solution which has the potential to lift our country's literacy rate in record time. This programme has used a mix of teaching software, multimedia presentations and printed material to educate over 200,000 individuals till date.
TCS also spearheads the Employability Training Programme comprising corporate etiquettes, basic computer skills, English and interviewing skills, among others, to rural youth across India. Till date, 50,000 youth have been trained under this programme.
Giving Wings to Their Dreams
Jaguar Land Rover's Education Business Partnership Centres (EBPCs) introduce young people to real-world operational challenges and encourage them to pursue engineering and manufacturing careers.
JLPR has five EBPCs to enthuse school kids in the fields of engineering, manufacturing and automotive businesses towards which it makes an annual contribution worth £350,000.
