With an aim to contribute something to society, students of the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IIT-G) have launched a scheme 'Zero Illiteracy Zone' to educate students from Class I to Class X from the neighbouring villages. 'We have been conducting regular classes for children to educate them and strengthen their foundation for the last six months,' said a student from IIT-G. At least 160 students have profited from their zero-illiteracy drive. Classes for the 'Zero Illiteracy Zone' is conducted at Kendriya Vidyalaya, located in the IIT-G premises. 'We have noticed significant progress among students after examination held recently. Students were also felicitated by IIT-G volunteer. The other students have also been given consolation prizes,' said Ashish Kakran, general secretary of IIT-G Students' Welfare Board.

The teaching sessions were not only for the youngsters in villages. They also benefited the Grade IV employees of the institute. The IIT-G students have been conducting English speaking classes for security guards so that they can converse with visitors from abroad. 'These guards have started speaking in English,' added Ashish.
