In the year 2007, a group of people from remote villages in India – who couldn’t read or write in any language – set out to accomplish the impossible.
From being absolutely illiterate, they went on to acquire the ability to converse in English, to work on computers and essentially, to work like any other ‘employee’ in a high-tech industry, where they could be considered ‘Knowledge Workers’ – in under 8 months.
They began to start speaking and living with confidence. In eight months, they had changed — dramatically.
Most of their training was conducted by the founding team of the Head Held High Foundation itself, with the support of dedicated volunteers.
The videos of these eight people before and after the training can be seen in the last section of this page.
