Why Literacy is Important...

In the United States, an estimated 30 million people over the age of 16 read no better than the average elementary school child. Yet the ability to read and write is the basis for all other education; literacy is necessary for an individual to understand information that is out of context, whether written or verbal.

Literacy is essential if we are to eradicate poverty at home and abroad, improve infant mortality rates, address gender inequality and create sustainable development.

Without literacy skills, the abilities to read, to write, to do math, to solve problems, and to access and use technology, today’s adults will struggle to take part in the world around them and fail to reach their full potential as parents, community members and employees.
