Over ONE BILLION PEOPLE cannot READ or WRITE in the World. Global illiteracy is one of the most powerful obstacles to people becoming self sufficient & thriving.
Global Literacy is Possible
A Powerful Vision for the World
Imagine a world where everyone has enough. Every human being can read, write, and is able to sustain himself/herself without charity. It is possible! Though, research has shown to end global poverty, literacy is tantamount. Dreamweaver believes this is possible.
From a historical perspective, literacy levels for the world population have risen dramatically in the last two centuries. In 1820, only 12% of the people in the world could read and write. Today, 86% of the world's population is literate. However, a disproportionate number of people in under-resourced countries remain unable to read and write. For example, in Niger (Central Africa) the literacy rate among youth (15-24 years) is only 36.5%. Many countries have literacy rates over 95% and some are nearly 100%. Though, a small percentage of people even in the United States, Europe, and other developed regions of the world, are unable to read and write.
