Buoyed by the success of its model Malayalam literacy project for migrant workers in Perumbavoor municipality in Ernakulam, the Kerala State Literacy Mission Authority is all set to expand the novel project christened ‘Changathy’ to the remaining 13 districts of the State.
The project aims at making migrants literate in Malayalam in four months by holding classes at least five hours a week.
CECs, libraries, schools, public places, work sites, and shelters of migrant workers will serve as study centres.
One local body in each district has been identified for the introduction of the project and classes in all 13 selected local bodies will get under way in April.
A survey held as a prelude to the launch of the project has identified 7,013 potential participants across the districts, out of which 6,475 are men and 538 are women.
