In the states of Bihar and Jharkhand, the illiteracy rate in remote villages remains very high, especially among women. To combat this scourge, our partner Karuna-Shechen offers free literacy classes to village women, as well as courses in reading, writing, arithmetic, and geography.

To promote the economic empowerment of the village women, the programme offers training in income-generating activities such as making candles, incense, chalk, recycled paper bags, and raki, preparing ready-to-sell snacks, cultivating mushrooms or knitting.

In addition, in its training centre in Bodhgaya (Bihar state), free computer classes (DTP and Office Management) are organised for young people, each lasting six months.

In 2015, Karuna-Shechen’s education projects have benefited 3,000 primary and secondary school children, 21 community schools in Nepal, including six new schools, three community schools in India, and overall 800 children under six years old in 20 Indian villages.

Karuna-Shechen acts for the education of children and young adults, especially girls. The work is carried out with local partners in remote communities of India, Nepal, and Tibet – all to provide access to quality education and empower children to build their future.
