Literacy unlocks the door to learning throughout life, is essential to development and health, and opens the way for democratic participation and active citizenship.

Our belief is that the literacy and gender equality in education is the basis of the change in the world. Even though literacy is the critical factor for learning in the modern society 793 million people across the globe lack the ability to read and write.

Educating girls and women is widely acknowledged as the most powerful and effective way to address global poverty. Women who finish secondary school earn more money, have smaller, healthier families, and are more likely to educate their own children—breaking the cycle of illiteracy in one generation.

With the support of international donors CRC is geared to promote literacy and gender equality in education by classes and establishing libraries at rural levels specially to enhance the knowledge levels of under privileged girls who have limited access to those facilities.

To achieve the above mentioned target, the CRC has set up a a well-stocked library for the children to utilize with the funds granted by Save the Children Sri Lanka and an IT laboratory funded by Mr. Don Fuller, a British national.
