Who we are

In 2014, DEVI launched a highly innovative toolkit to promote literacy, the Global Dream program. Global Dream has turned into a people’s movement for making India literate. The Global Dream Toolkits are used as the curriculum to teach illiterate people to read. They perform much faster than other existing primers and curriculums. An average person can begin to read within three months with a single 15 minutes teaching session per day.

Student as the Leaders of Change

Such is the power and the ease of using the Global Dream Toolkits that even a school-going child can teach an illiterate person to read. This proposition was first tried out in May and June, 2014. Sixty-six thousand children of more than 158 schools of Lucknow, Kanpur and Barabanki participated in the “Each one reach and teach at least one campaign”. Since then the program has been repeated every summer.

Going PAN India

Global Dream is working in several different ways to accelerate literacy through schools, colleges, universities, corporations, NGOs and other institutions. The curriculum for literacy and numeracy has also been translated into several Indian languages with more language versions being added subsequently with time. In addition, an App for the same is being developed. Now the Global Dream project has been adopted by Rotary India’s Literacy Mission and the school-based summer assignment is now being replicated in schools across the country. The Modalities include:

Toolkits for 1:1 or more settings

Coolkits (Mini Dream Labs) for 1:10 or 1:20 settings in villages, slums, etc.

Community-based Dream Labs

Classroom instruction in government schools

A mobile app

Corporations can support the project by involving their own staff in teaching:
a)       Illiterate people within the corporate house
b)       Illiterate people in the families of the corporate staff
c)       People in support roles like bus drivers etc.
d)       Any illiterate person in the neighborhood
e)       Adopt a nearby slum
f)        Adopt a village or more,
g)       Provide funds for others to undertake Global Dream including fund initiatives through DEVI  Sansthan.

DEVI Sansthan

Global Dream

Dignity, Education, Vision International is a non-profit organization serving the underprivileged populations since 1992. The aim of DEVI is to be a catalyst in creating replicable models of change. In the past it has collaborated with donors and NGOs to initiate changes in diverse fields like education, income generation, skills development, entrepreneurship, health care and awareness building campaigns

Recently, DEVI has focused solely on education. In 2000, DEVI developed ‘Sampoorn Nai Shiksha’, a curriculum for schools working for the underprivileged. This curriculum has been revised and improved over the years. Since 2014, pilot programs to improve literacy have been launched in slums, villages, government schools, and among schoolchildren in Lucknow and other cities in Uttar Pradesh.

Encouraged by this overwhelming response, DEVI has been able to get the moral support of the Government of Uttar Pradesh. The Chief Secretary of UP, Mr. Alok Ranjan, along with Mr. G.B. Pattanaik, Chairperson of India Literacy Board, Lucknow are the Co-Chairpersons of the Global Dream People’s Movement for Literacy. Recently DEVI has entered into a memorandum of understanding with Rotary India Literacy Mission to jointly promote Literacy campaign across India.

Sumpoorn Nai Shiksha

Global Dream

DEVI’s first project was called the ‘Sumpoorn Nai Shiksha (SNS)’ or ‘All-encompassing New Education (ANewEd).’ This was conceptualized for a first step towards an education that addresses both intellectual needs and the human/social perspective

This is the cornerstone of DEVI Sansthan which seeks to empower the underprivileged and illiterate populations of India, with special emphasis on educating the girl-child.
