ULLAS Initiative Boosts Ladakh's Literacy to 97%

Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh, Dr. B.D. Mishra declared Ladakh as the administrative unit to achieve Full Functional Literacy under the ULLAS – Nav Bharat Saaksharta Karyakram on 24 June 2024.

The declaration was made in the presence of Shri Sanjay Kumar, Secretary of Department of School Education and Literacy, Ministry of Education, Government of India; Smt. Archana Sharma Awasthi, Joint Secretary; Dr. Mohd. Jaffer Akhoon, Chairman, LAHDC, Kargil; Shri Sanjeev Khirwar, Principal Secretary, School Education, Ladakh; and more than 500 new literates and volunteers.

Dr. Mishra encouraged new learners and volunteers to continue learning throughout their lives and emphasized the responsibility of parents to send their children to school. He also urged students to not only look for jobs but also think of creating jobs.

He praised Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for introducing the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, stating that the policy paves the way for future growth of the country.

The ULLAS model is based on volunteerism, with volunteers registering through the ULLAS Mobile App without any expectation of reward and teaching non-literates without any expectation of reward.

The scheme consists of five components: Foundational Literacy and Numeracy, Critical Life Skills, Basic Education, Vocational Skills, and Continuing Education. The vision of the ULLAS Scheme is to make Bharat - Jan Jan Saakshar and is based on the spirit of Kartvya Bodh and is implemented on volunteerism.
