Women Literacy Project
Our Women’s Literacy Project started in 2004 with two centers at Manju Ka Tila teaching 60 beneficiaries. There were hindrances and ups & downs and at one point we even thought of giving up. The dedication and enthusiasm of our President, C.E.O and our Women’ Literacy Team didn’t let us fall and also the mission of the forefathers of Virmani Trust “Giving back to the society” Kept us motivated and unstoppable.
A computer module developed by Tata Consultancy Services was introduced on computers donated by them that juxtaposed text, sound and visuals to enable an illiterate person to read and write Hindi and learn Arithmetic.
Today, we have 646 centers in Delhi, Haridwar, Uttrakhand and Haryana teaching 51,952 beneficiaries. During the last 13 years, 1,07,460 women, their families and community have benefited from our programme.
