Participated in the Rotary Club's Programme on the topic 'भारत में सम्पूर्ण साक्षरता - एक दिशा'

35,000+ clubs of Rotary are working together on significant issues such as promoting peace, fighting conflict, providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene, protecting mothers and children & much more.

Literacy is a catalyst for development, which enables a person not only to get proper economic, political and social benefits but also to contribute to national and international development.

Under NEP2020, we aim to achieve 100% Gross Enrolment Ratio in preschool to secondary level by 2030. To help achieve this goal, we have recently started a new program 'Padhna Likhna Abhiyan' a scheme for #adult education. The main aim of the scheme is to provide functional literacy to illiterate and digitally literate 57 lakh adults aged 15 years and above in both rural and urban areas across the country.

Under SamagraShiksha, the Ministry of Education has launched NISHTHA which aims to update the skills and knowledge of 42 lakh teachers in the States and UTs. We have also taken several initiatives towards the promotion and digitization of e-learning for learners of schools, colleges and universities such as SWAYAM, Swayam Prabha, ePathshala, NROER, PM e-Vidya, DIKSHA, etc.

Vidyadan 2.0, a joint initiative of @Rotary and @ncert, is also a commendable step in which Rotary International will provide e-content in Hindi language to NCERT for all subjects from class 1 to 12. Certainly, this high-quality reading material will greatly benefit our children.

I urge people to unite & diligently work towards making our glorious nation ‘साक्षर भारत - आत्मनिर्भर भारत'.
