The Jomtien decade witnessed a significant improvement in the adult literacy rates of
Nepal from 35.6 percent (males 53.5% and females 19.4%) in 1991 to 48.0 percent (males 64.5% and females 33.8%) in 20011. According to the latest Annual Households Survey (AHS)2014/15, the overall adult literacy rate of 15 years and above population is 63.7 percent, with wide variations between gender (male and female), location (urban and rural) and income (the poorest and the richest consumption quintiles).

The survey revealed that the rates for adult males and females are 76.2 percent and 53.3 percent respectively. Correspondingly, the adult literacy rates for urban and rural areas are 74.4 percent (males 84.6% and females 65.5%) and 58.6 percent (males 72.1% and females 47.8%). Similarly, the variation between the poorest consumption quintiles with adult literacy rates at 41.6 percent (males 55.2% and females 30.2%) and the richest consumption quintiles at 83.3 percent (males 92.9% and females 74.2%) is huge.The Non-Formal Education Centre (NFEC) is the lead specialized agency along with the Department of Education (DoE) with regard to the effective implementation of the non-formal education and literacy related programs in the country. Based on the lessons learned from the NLC, the MOE continued with the literacy campaign under the banner of the Literate Nepal Mission (LINEM) 2012-2015. The LINEM aimed to achieve universal literacy by making all 75 districts of Nepal as fully literate. The specific objective of the NLC and the LINEM as mentioned in the Literacy Operational Guidelines published by the NFEC is to enable the participants to read and understand words, sentences and simple texts written in Nepali language or in their mother tongue; to perform simple arithmetic calculations necessary in their practical life and to acquire and use functional knowledge and skills essential in their daily life.
