Sakshara’s Reading for Literacy programme is designed to help adults to become literate in languages that they can speak. The technique followed to teach adults is picture to picture, then picture to word, and then word to word recognition through flash cards. This helps them familiarise themselves with the words, and also start recognising the letters of the alphabet.
Sakshara volunteers can currently conduct reading and literacy sessions in Hindi, Tamil, English and Kannada.
Sakshara also works with children to improve their reading skills, and to inculcate the habit of reading for pleasure.
