Education is the most powerful weapon that we can use to change the world.
- Nelson Mandela
One of the biggest contributors to global poverty is the lack of access to education. The following facts about education are a snapshot of the problem.
- In 2015, the total number of illiterate adults reached 745.1 million.
- About 114 million young people, still lack basic reading and writing skills. Two-thirds (63 percent) are women.
- Globally, women aged 15 years and older are nine percent less likely to be literate than men, and young women between 15 and 24 years are four percent less likely to be literate than young men.
In order to effectively fight poverty around the world, the lack of education for children in developing countries, especially for girls, must be addressed.
