Spreading a ray of hope, the CARE literacy programme began its operation in November 2001. Volunteers from Don Bosco Institute (DBI), Guwahati visited door to door to convince the parents or guardians of these unfortunate children to let their child avail quality education. CARE initially started 27 tuition centres where victims of the ethnic strife who do not go to schools or have left schools could come and learn. The number of centres has now increased to thirty-six. The total number of CARE teachers is now fourty-five, with some centres having more than one teacher. The teachers serving in these centres are mostly high school drop-outs who left studies because of economic constraints and belong to the village where the centre is located

The number of tuition centres has now increased to 38. The total number of CARE teachers is now 46, with some centres having more than one teacher. The teachers serving in these centres are mostly high school drop-outs who left studies because of economic constraints and belong to the village where the centre is located.

The CARE centres serve as bridge course centres for those young children (in the age-group of 5-8 yrs) who do not have a school within walking distance. After these children acquire the basics of literacy, they are mainstreamed into regular schools by the CARE teachers. At present, a total of 2,438 students are attending classes in these tuition centres.

Since the parents of these children are illiterate, and economically and psychologically depressed, it is impossible to design a single, homogeneous implementation strategy to bring their children to the CARE centres. Below are the organizational approach designed to reach out to the deprived people and to promote literacy.

DBI and assisted in the construction of seven schools (one High school, two middle schools and three primary schools)giving a face lift to the entire CARE community.
