#IndiaGetsReading, A Three-Month Long National Reading Campaign

Over 300 million people in India are illiterate — one of the largest populations in the world — and among the more than 130 million children in primary schools, over half are not able to read and write at their grade levels. Yet, a literate, and in today’s times, a digitally literate population, is key to India's development and economic empowerment.

Is it really impossible to realize this dream? To have an India where every child reads and writes at their grade level and every individual is literate?
