The more you learn, the more you can learn
Literacy facts keeps us humble.
Nearly 20 percent of the world’s adult population remains illiterate. One billion adults are without basic reading and writing skills; 60 percent of the one billion are women who live and work in the developing countries. The highest percentage is found in Africa, though the largest number is in Asia.
Children are less motivated for learning if their mothers are illiterate, and 130 million school-age children are without access to schools. Illiteracy passes from one generation to another. The illiterate are not stereotypic. They hold a job, have family responsibilities, personal life goals and values. In illiterate countries, they often have a rich heritage of oral traditions and values. Literacy enables us to retrain to a new job, so we don’t feel in a rut or because unemployment raises its ugly head.
