Making this possible is a remarkable initiative from the Tata Group that has changed the lives of thousands of adults in different parts of India. The 'computer-based functional literacy' (CBFL) programme is a new-age solution to an age-old problem, and one that has the potential to lift our country's literacy rate in record time. Born of the Tata Group's ever-enduring commitment to community causes and bred by its expertise in information technology, this is a project as novel in methodology as it is ambitious in scope.

The problem
Nearly 350 million Indians cannot read or write
The potential
The CBFL project can make 90% of India functionally literate in three to five years
