Literacy Missiona small programme started by the students of NITH in 2004 with a philanthropic aim of educating the children of the nearby impoverished society; has now become a big well organized family consisting more than 100 volunteers and about 150 children .The team has left no stone unturned to help these poor children realize their dreams. These children are being given all the necessary things for their studies free of cost. Medical assistance is also provided to their families. The hard work of kids has really paid and the phenomenal success bears a testimony to this fact. 

Some of the victories of kids are-

3.      A student Mr. Bhupendra has cleared the Indian Air Force exam in 2009 and is presently posted in Assam.
4.      A total of 3 students are presently studying at JNV.
5.      Ms. Madhu got 84% and Mr. Chandan got 86.4% in their 10th boards exams (H.P Board).
6.      Most of the children have been made computer literate.
Medical assistance has been provided to kids:-
1.      Prince, whose parents are daily wage workers, had suffered a cardiac disorder at the age of four yrs. He was successfully operated at ESCORT Hospital, DELHI with timely effort and support of Literacy Mission.
2.      Another child Arpita had suffered from multiple cysts in kidney when she was two yrs old got successfully operated at PGIMER, Chandigarh.

To meet this expenditure we organize PRAYAS in which students as well as faculty members of NITH make contributions. The funds collected during PRAYAS from college students (by selling tickets for this one day fest), and from Faculties (by means of donations) do not make the sufficient amount of funds for the year round activities of Literacy Mission, and so we seek a kind support from all the alumni of NITH in any way they can provide; be it financial, sponsoring kids in their education, etc. .
Literacy Mission maintains an SBI account where donation can be made, the account details of which are provided below.
