Vacancy Announcement:

Team Member – Women’s Literacy Education and Empowerment Programme

About Nirantar: 
Nirantar works towards enabling empowering education, especially for those from marginalized communities. We seek to promote transformatory formal and non-formal learning processes which enable the marginalized to better understand and address their realities. Our focus on gender interlinks strongly with other social dimensions, in particular those of caste, sexuality and religion. Nirantar promotes access to information, literacy, and perspective and skill building through interactive trainings and educational resources that are simple but not simplistic. Nirantar also works at the community level and undertakes research and advocacy, particularly on critical issues which need greater attention from the State as well as civil society.
