Ushering Societal Change through Literacy and Women Empowermet - We at Shiksha Alok believe that educating women is the most powerful way to address societal limitations. Educated women are bread winners, supplement family incomes, raise more manageable and healthier families. Their children are more likely to educate their own families, thus breaking the cycle of illiteracy within the generation.
