​Kerala Government introduces education program to empower Transgenders

State Education Minister C Raveendranath said that the main objective of the program is to create an inclusive society for all marginalized sections.

To ensure empowerment and provide equal opportunities to the Transgender community, the LDF government in Kerala has introduced an education programme for Transgenders.

In recent times, many transgender friendly initiatives have been taken in Kerala to bring the transgender community to the forefront.

It was the first state in the country to introduce the Transgender Policy in 2015 to put an end to the stigma toward the sexual minority group and ensure that they receive non-discriminatory treatment and justice.

A 10-day-long state-wide survey was launched to estimate the number of transgenders in Kerala.

P S Sreekala, Director, State Literacy Mission, said, "It is a first of its kind initiative in the country. The Literacy Mission already has its equivalency course and other programmes. We are planning to bring the TGs under this programme."

She said, "The state-wide survey is the first step and it will help in developing a clear picture about the total number of people who belong to this community in each district of the state. The government plans to launch literacy programme by next month once it gets the survey report."

Special classes would be arranged with assistance from the civic authorities and continuing education centres for transgenders in each district. The classes would be conducted as per the existing syllabus of the literacy programme.

Sreekala added, "The government also has plans to bring in other marginalized groups such as migrant workers and coastal people under the literacy programme."

State Education Minister C Raveendranath said that the main objective of the program is to create an inclusive society for all marginalized sections.
