Though there exist many institutions including Government organizations engaged in the sector of education to promote education and make the new generation literate. But with every institution in the sector of education there exist a number of problems and the one is scarcity of teaching staff to cope up with the growing population. The scarcity of teachers could be noticed in primary level schools run by local Government in rural areas. Since the very base on which progressive higher education is dependent is primary education. Building of a strong educational foundation at primary level is of immeasurable importance to minimize toughness of the higher education. The social development of any community needs literacy rate at zenith. Therefore to supplement the teachers’ vacancies in Government Primary Schools in rural and remote areas and keep the study on we decided to take help of international volunteers so that solid base of education at primary level is constituted and the children are prepared to accept challenge of higher education fearlessly in future.
