There are 757 million people who cannot read this single sentence. The consequences of illiteracy go far beyond not being able to read a book – it fuels some of the world’s biggest problems, including child marriage, malnutrition, gender inequality and female genital mutilation.The Alphabet of Illiteracy uses each letter of the alphabet to highlight an issue that could be tackled if literacy was improved. Project Literacy is a global movement aims to make significant and sustainable advances in the fight against illiteracy so that all people - regardless of geography, language, race, class, or gender – have the opportunity to fulfill their potential through the power of words.
