Eradicate Illiteracy by 2030

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


We strongly believe that literacy is the foundation of lifelong learning and education. It empowers people to reach their full potential and excel in school and beyond.

Unfortunately, there are 750 million people around the world that can't read a single word and another 2 billion struggle to read a sentence. This reality has a negative social and economic impact, such as:

  • poor health outcomes
  • welfare dependency
  • gender inequality
  • lack of social cohesion
  • unemployment
  • increased criminal activities

LITERACY IS AN INVESTMENT IN THE FUTURE

Enhancing literacy levels is essential to the economic development and to the well-being of communities worldwide. Literacy is key to break the cycle of poverty; it leads us to a stronger and healthier community with a more talented workforce.

This petition is on behalf of and a collective voice of 2800+ World Literacy Ambassadors who are located in over 100 countries and are passionate about changing illiteracy rates.
