EDUCATION IS AT THE HEART OF DEVELOPMENT AND IS KEY TO BREAKING THE POVERTY CYCLE

Education is at the heart of development and is key to breaking the poverty cycle, and improving health, nutrition, income and opportunities for all children. At least 250 million school-age children worldwide currently do not know the basics in reading and mathematics. This poor level of literacy drives school drop-out and exam failure and blocks students from progressing to secondary school. Ultimately, it puts millions of children at a cruel disadvantage for the rest of their lives.

In 2011, literacy rate of Madhya Pradesh is 70.6 per cent as compared to 63.7 per cent in the year 2001. During the last decade the rise in literacy rate of Madhya Pradesh is 6.9 percentage points. Female and male literacy rates in 2011 are 60.0 per cent and 80.5 per cent respectively. In 2001, female literacy rate was 50.3 per cent whereas male literacy rate was 76.1 per cent.The rise in female literacy is 9.7 percentage points whereas male literacy rate has increased by 4.5 percentage points. In Census 2001, Madhya Pradesh stood 24th in the country in literacy whereas in 2011 it has slipped to 28th position, same as in female literacy rate. Jan Madhyam is targeting to improve the education system especially in rural areas of Madhya Pradesh by supporting poor school children with additional tutorials to cope up with the syllabus and making learning fun.
