 You are most warmly invited to attend the launch of Global Dream Shaala, an initiative of DEVI Sansthan in collaboration with SBI Life. Global Dream Shaala is being launched on Human Rights Day, on Thursday, 10 December 2020 at 12 noon, and will be inaugurated by Lucknow’s Mayor, honorable Mrs. Sanyukta Bhatia.


The purpose of Global Dream Shaala is to educate out-of-school children and adults who are illiterate. Global Dream Shaala uses the unique Global Dream Toolkits as basis that takes a person from being illiterate to literate within two months with just 15 to 30 minute sessions per day. This is ten times faster than other alternatives. The digital version of the Global Dream Toolkit uses video based instruction and involves community based volunteers who are often themselves illiterate, but whose primary role is to motivate the learners and support them. In this process, they too become literate. Beyond literacy, the program takes learning of the children to Grade 3 and 5 levels, and beyond. This zero-cost model shortly will be made ready for scaling up from Lucknow to across the State of Uttar Pradesh and beyond. 


Dr. Sunita Gandhi, Founder, DEVI Sansthan and Global Education & Training Institute, Ph.D., Cambridge University, UK, and pedigree Educator says: "Something has to done given COVID has set back the education of children nationwide. Personalized and accelerated learning systems that deliver on education through a fast-tracked motivational program such as Global Dream seem the most appropriate way forward."


Attend the launch ceremony on the following link, https://zoom.us/my/globaldream or watch on Facebook: www.facebook.com/GlobalDream2F2E/Live
