Functional Literacy for Women

Tata AIA Life Insurance has partnered with Center for Micro Finance (CMF), an associate organization of the Tata Trust for functional literacy amongst tribal women and digital literacy by way of Community Information Resource Center (CIRC) amongst adolescent youth.

CMF primarily promotes community led microfinance and rural livelihoods in Rajasthan. CMF will work with Grameen Mahila Vikas Sansthan, Digital Empowerment Foundation, Foundation for Education and Development and PRADAN towards this initiative in three districts of Rajasthan- Udaipur, Pali and Sirohi.

The objective of our programme is to provide basic education to women from marginalized communities who are part of self-reliant SHGs formed at district level. These women usually lack basic skills to handle regular SHG as well as household operations. Tata AIA Life Insurance is associated with community centers in 4 blocks of Rajasthan that provide functional literacy to 250 women from surrounding communities. Every center has been allotted with 1 coordinator from the community and facilitates all educational activities in the center.
