Literacy Charity Dinner - Oct. 24th
- Katherine Patterson
Why Literacy is Important
In the United States, an estimated 30 million people over the age of 16 read no better than the average elementary school child. Worldwide, nearly 800 million adults are illiterate in their native languages; two-thirds of them are women. Yet the ability to read and write is the basis for all other education; literacy is necessary for an individual to understand information that is out of context, whether written or verbal. Literacy is essential if we are to eradicate poverty at home and abroad, improve infant mortality rates, address gender inequality, and create sustainable development. Without literacy skills - the abilities to read, to write, to do math, to solve problems, and to access and use technology - today's adults will struggle to take part in the world around them and fail to reach their full potential as parents, community members, and employees.
