Buoyed by the success of ‘Changathi, the literacy programme for migrant labourers, launched at Perumbavoor in Ernakulam district in September 2017, the State Literacy Mission extended the programme to the other districts. The Literacy Mission has identified 7,013 migrant labourers who are willing to join the programme across the state.
Among the migrants identified, 6,475 are men and 538 women. In the first phase, the programme will be implemented in one local body in each district. A training programme held for 26 master trainers – two from each of the 13 districts – in Ernakulam district. One Education Centre each will be opened in all the 13 districts for the implementation of the literacy programme.
