Programme Details
The Adult Literacy Programme was set up to help the Government of India improve adult literacy rates, using the Computer Based Functional Literacy (CBFL) solution. Using the CBFL model, non-literate adult learners can achieve functional literacy (reading, writing, arithmetic) within 50 hours, over a period of three months, which is about 1/6th the time demanded by conventional learning methods. The CBFL software is available in nine Indian and three foreign languages. TCS fosters strategic partnerships with local governments, jail authorities, NGOs and other companies to enhance the reach.
Target Beneficiaries
The programme has a unique focus on women and adults from marginalized communities and has been extensively used by prison authorities as a reformation process for the inmates.
