abstract

  • Illiteracy: 20% of the world is still illiterate, and 67.4 million children are not enrolled in schools (United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), 2011). Literacy is a basic human right, but it is highly lacking at the global scale, adversely affecting individuals' civic participation and volunteerism, and in turn their ability to address global problems.
