# ‘Thumb to Signature’ launched with #’SYAHI’ – the 6th Adult Literacy Center # Manthan SVK, DJJS

April 27, 2018

Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan under the banner of its social initiative Manthan SVK instituted another (6th) Adult Literacy Center- ‘Syahi’ on 18th April, 2018 in B-42, Bagdola Village, Vivekanand Marg, Opposite Mother Dairy, Sector-8, Dwarka, New Delhi. To enliven the vision of Sakshar Bharat- Sashakt Bharat, Manthan SVK is incessantly working towards helping adult scholars to gain literacy skills, which will undoubtedly help in improving literacy rate of India, reducing gender discrimination and poverty, will boost confidence in the women scholars, and also will advance the human rights around the world.

In this drive, Rotaract Club of Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, Delhi University, has contributed by providing the smart learning setup at the center. 15 women have been enrolled in this literacy course session. Hundreds of women who were deprived of their education rights in their childhood are now proud literates, who now understand the banking process, can easily commute from one place to another, are able to keep a check on their kid’s academics and understand the importance of education in one’s life which was earlier a herculean task for them. Many of them have now access to jobs and now able to tackle issues related to domestic violence and discrimination in much better and mature ways.

Our program promotes Adult Education through:

•    Hindi Language Learning (Reading, Writing)
•    Basic Math
•    Financial and Health Literacy

As customary, the program commenced with the lamp lighting ceremony followed by the felicitation with the bouquets of our guests Ms. Anshika Walia, President Rotaract Club, Mr. Gurkirat Singh, Secretary, Rotaract Club, Mr. Ankit Lakhina, Mr. Varun and Mr. Sarthak from Rotaract Club, and preachers – Sadhvi Deepa Bharti Ji, Sadhvi Anisha Bharti Ji, and Sadhvi Manisha Bharti Ji. A video on how the Adult Literacy programs are functioning from past two years successfully in our various Manthan Branches was also showcased. Thereafter, Ms. Sampati & Ms. Asha the beneficiaries of this program from Shakurpur centre shared their experiences after being a SYAHI scholar. The women enrolled for this batch were then honored with SYAHI I-cards and a stationery kit provided by the Rotaract Club. The Rotaract Club volunteers also shared their experience on being a part of this initiative. The program concluded with an ending note given by Sadhvi Deepa Bharti Ji, Program coordinator of Manthan SVK, DJJS. With the divine blessings of His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, this noble effort was well applauded and appreciated by one and all.
