One of the most important skills a child can learn

Literacy opens doors for children.

Why Is Literacy So Important?

One of every 5 people over the age of 15 is illiterate*, yet literacy is of primary importance in today's world. Literacy opens doors of opportunity and understanding that no other skill can provide. The ability to read, write, and understand allows a level of communication that can make a huge difference in every life. Reading is necessary to understand a binding contract or a legal processes. Most modern high-paying jobs require the ability to read and write. And to communicate to anyone over any distance, whether an employer or a pen-pal, a person must have a basic level of literacy, or that effort will fail.
