The guards are taught spoken and written English.. English classes are also organized and owing to an overwhelming response, the volunteers are able to teach the guards up to a level that they can answer a volley of questions fired at them in English. It’s the same guards for whom once upon a time English meant just "Good morning" and “Thank you”. The change is distinct and visible.Apart from this, since year 2009, the mess workers are being taught English and general awareness. Starting from scratch, their enthusiasm is appreciable. Classes are conducted on a regular basis in all the hostels.Interaction with them shows that they are certainly enjoying it and getting benefitted.
