Let's start with some scary statistics:
State with highest literacy rate : Kerala (89.8)
State with lowest literacy rate : Bihar (38.5)
District with highest literacy rate : Kottayam, Kerala (95.7)
District with lowest literacy rate : Jhabua, Madhya Pradesh (19.0)
We had to do something to change these numbers… and so we started project Titli (Butterfly).
In our Titli programme we have over 200 children who are educated free of cost. We provide them with all the books, stationery and periodic health check-ups as well. They have a fully equipped class-room and most of them enjoy being able to sit under a fan in this scorching heat for the 2 hours that they are in school. We encourage them to take part in all extra-curricular activities like singing, dancing and art – which whilst might be the norm to other kids, is totally alien to these children.
We have activities all the year round for our Tilti students.
We request people to donate
If you’d like to give something to our Titlis, please Get Involved… Its a wonderful Feeling…
Some suggestions for helping are:
Rest assured that for all monetary contributions, we always give a receipt. Not a single rupee donated is used for any administrative purpose at all. We use every single rupee for the students – for whom the donation was made.
When donating goods, please keep in mind that we have 250 students and donate accordingly to make each one feel special.
If you or your company is willing and able to help our Titlis in any way, please do pick up the phone and contact us on +91 9631 252 241.
