"Just $1 a day keeps illiteracy away" - from a child to a child, helping to eradicate illiteracy
Ekal Vidyalaya is a Movement involved in the integrated & holistic development of rural & tribal India. The main activity undertaken in this movement is to run one-teacher schools [known as Ekal Vidyalayas] all over India, in the remotest rural & tribal villages to take the education to every child. The Ekal movement aims to help eradicate illiteracy from rural and tribal India following the philosophy of rural development based on the criteria of equality & inclusiveness across all the sections of the society.
We are a group of volunteers working in the Silicon Valley Bay Area Chapter, California. Recently we successfully hosted a fund-raising event which raised funds for well over 350 schools!! $365 funds 1-school, 1-Teacher for 30-children for 1-full year!
Taking inspiration from "$1 a day keeps illiteracy away" we would like to present this platform for children in the Silicon Valley Bay Area to help children in another part of the world, gain literacy and other skills.
