Even in 2010, much of the world remains illiterate. Nearly twenty percent of the world's population cannot read or write simple words. Many of the illiterate reside in third world countries, and are mainly comprised of women and children. Without the ability to read, these women and future adults have a harder time providing for their families than those who can read. This makes them more likely to live in impoverished conditions indefinitely. In order to relieve illiteracy, education and financing hold the key.
have the greatest impact on literacy. Many countries have a hard
time providing enough educators to their people. Teaching reading
takes time and practice and there are simply not enough teachers to
go around. It takes time to train an educator to teach others how to
read. In addition, it is most effective to hold reading classes for
many people at a time. Students can attend class together and
provide each other with practice and support. Training tools and
materials must be provided in native languages in order to train the
educators thoroughly and teach the students. It is especially
important that a person learn how to read and write in their native
language first. There are many programs available for learning
English, but this would not be helpful for people in many counties.
Each country has their own language that will be most useful to a
person living there, because most documents and signs will be in
their native language. By learning how to form letters and decipher
their meaning, a person has the ability to apply for a job and be
able to provide for their families.
