The literacy programme

Global dream 2f 2e

F Functional Literacy, F Financial Literacy, E Entrepreneurship, E Empowerment

DEVI’s new project ‘Global Dream 2F 2E’ involves the use of innovative curriculum to give the gift of education to someone who has only dreamt of it. It has three levels for functional and financial literacy:

Level 1: Reading
Level 2: Writing
Level 3: Numeracy

All goals of functional and financial literacy are-built into these three levels. Entrepreneurship training is also being planned. This program aims to use income generating training and opportunities to create the incentives and motivation to acquire an education.

We believe that education should address the daily challenges faced by individuals. Functional and financial literacy which are the first and most significant steps. They create the desire to learn more and the hope that this is possible. Combined with training in entrepreneurship, these are the first steps in a person’s empowerment process.

An Innovative Curriculum

It has taken 14 years to come to this curriculum that makes learning to read easy for the learner. With the minimum of support from a mentor, an average child or adult (7-107 years of age!) can begin to read 2-letter words from the first session. With regular classes of no more than 20 minutes per day, most can master reading to the extent that they can read within 2-3 months!

  • A learner can learn anywhere, at any time and with anyone’s help.

Typical school based curriculum takes a learner 3 years or more to be able to read. The first year, children learn ‘Swar’, the next year ‘Vyanjan’ and the third year ‘Matras’. ASER Report’s latest data shows that even after five years of education till Class V, over 25% of school going children cannot read.


The fact that most learners begin to read two-letter words from the first session serves as a huge motivation. In addition, the Global Dream Program focuses on the student, moves him/her from the known to the unknown so that they are always engaged, and asks the mentor to maintain a positive relationship with the student. Few students have been given the opportunity to learn in a setting where they are valued and focused upon, where they can understand how the material connects to what they know and see the benefits of learning right away. As a result, they keep coming back for more.

Underprivileged children and adults have time and place constraints and they cannot wait for three years to learn to read. A focused, student-centered program is necessary for them. This is why Global Dream is effective
