Introduction

Development programmes in each and every sphere of life cannot be the sole responsibility of the Government. This reality necessitates the active participation of non-government organisations (NGOs) in social development projects. Adult education is such a field where NGOs have some very positive and significant contributions.

In the First Five Year plan, the Scheme of Assistance to Voluntary Agencies in the field of adult education was designed and started. It is a pleasure that much stress was also given in the subsequent plans. The National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986 has stipulated that NGOs, including social activist groups would be encouraged and financial supports would be provided to them subject to proper management. The Programme of Action (POA) to implement NPE, 1986 envisaged relationship of genuine partnership between the Government and NGOs. It was also decided that the Government should provide all sorts of facilities to promote wider involvement of NGOs in different development programmes. At the same time, it was realised that proper selection of NGOs is equally important.

In this context, National Literacy Mission (NLM) pointed out that diverse methods would be taken for identification and selection of most active NGOs. These NGOs may be involved on a large scale for the spread of education programme among illiterate adults and children, because eradication of illiteracy is the basic need of the day for our country. For the success of these projects, the Scheme of Grants-in-Aid formulated in 1978 and 1982, was modified with a view to bring it closer to the objectives and strategies of NLM. This modified scheme was named the “Central Scheme of Assistance to Non-Governmental Organisations – Partners in Literacy Action”.

This scheme was put into operation in 1988 under NLM. Simultaneously, measures were adopted by the Department of Education to make the scheme result-oriented, time-bound and cost-effective. Now financial support is provided to NGOs for undertaking projects of basic literacy, post literacy and various other adult education programmes including monitoring and evaluation of adult education programme. The main objective of the scheme is to secure intensive involvement of NGOs in the National Literacy Mission.2 The State Resource Centres (SRCs) have carved out a distinct niche for themselves among the professional organisations of adult education in India. Starting with 14 SRCs in 1980, their number increased to 24 by 1997. Based on the workload and size of the programmes in the state, SRCs are categorized into A and B. While some of the SRCs function directly under the state governments, others are managed either by NGOs or universities. All SRCs are expected to provide academic and technical resource support to adult education programmes in their respective states mainly through the organisation of training programmes, material development and production, publication, extension activities, innovative projects, research studies and evaluations.

Objectives
State Resource Centres are supposed to provide academic and technical resource support to literacy programmes. This has to be achieved through organising training programmes, material development and production, publication, extension activities, innovative projects, research studies and evaluations.

Functions

  • Development of teaching-learning and training materials for literacy programmes.

  • Non-Governmental Organisation, or

Resource Centres will be sanctioned to universities only where an appropriate voluntary agency can not be located. The Resource Centres sanctioned to university will, therefore, function only till such time as a suitable voluntary organisation is located.

Resource Centres already functioning under the aegis of universities must be brought under the aegis of registered voluntary agency in a phased manner as soon as a registered voluntary agency is located.

The affairs of each Resource Centre are to be managed by a board of management called Governing Body (GB) having members representing the interests of neo-literates/semi-literates (as given in Rule 3 of Rules and Regulations)
