Sakshar Bharat Yojana Literacy Programme in Bihar

10 lakh class IX and X students to educate 1.2 crore illiterates in Bihar
According to a recent decision, the Bihar government in a massive drive for literacy in the state is going to put its 10.5 lakh class IX and X students in the role of educators for the 1.2 crore adult illiterate people in Bihar. This plan will be implemented under a five-month literacy campaign ‘Sakshar Bharat Yojana’ to be launched from November 11 next. According to Principal Secretary (HRD) Anjani Kumar Singh, the scheme proposes to use a cadre of 10.50 lakh class IX and X students as volunteers to teach basic reading and writing skills to the illiterate people in Bihar. The students will be given extra 10 marks in the social science subject in the matriculation examination for this effort.

The HRD proposes to launch a training campaign in the state for volunteers from the government high schools to ensure they have the adequate teaching skills before they begin to teach the illiterate people in their areas. As the math shows, every student volunteer will be tasked to teach 10-12 illiterate persons. The HRD has also set up an administrative infrastructure for implementation and monitoring of the Sakshar Bharat Yojana in Bihar with as many as 250 trainers undergoing an intense training programme at the Directorate of Adult Education for Kendra Resource Person [KRP]. These KRPs in turn will provide training to the panchayat level motivators at the public training centres which will be set up soon at all panchayats in the state. A male and a female motivator each have been appointed at each panchayat with an honorarium of Rs 2000 to motivate the illiterate people to learn basic reading and writing skills under the Sakshar Bharat Yojana.

The panchayat level motivators will be trained in adequate computer skills to feed data on the number of illiterate adults undergoing literary programme so as funds could be released for sustaining the literacy campaign. Besides, the elected representatives at the panchayat level like mukhia and block pramukh will supervise the adult literacy programme. The Sakshar Bharat Yojana will be launched in 35 districts of Bihar on November 11 next to achieve cent per cent adult literacy in the state.
