|Why Literacy? Why not focus on world health? Or gender equality? Or poverty relief? To solve all of these

Because when individuals the world over learn how to read, write, do basic math, and use computers,
the more likely they are to lift themselves out of poverty, contribute to improved health care costs,
and find and keep sustainable employment.
