Literacy and Adult Education

  Reading Impacts Communities

"In the United States 1 in 5 American adults is functionally illiterate. That is more than 40 million people that can not read a bedtime story to their child, or read the directions on a medicine bottle.

Literate populations are more likely to develop economically, live healthier lives, and be more peaceful.  

Promote positive community environments for literacy.

 Increase access to adult learning programs for both men and women. 

Reduce barriers to literacy"
