Definition of Literacy!

According to the National Institute for Literacy: "The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 defines literacy as 'an individual's ability to read, write, speak in English, compute and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job, in the family of the individual and in society."

Global literacy rates!

Over the past two decades, over 774 million adults (over 15 years) are still unable to read or write. Two-thirds of them are women.
According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), children born to illiterate mothers are 50% less likely to survive past five years-old. In Latin America, children of mothers who have had some secondary schooling remain in school for two to three years longer.
On current trends, there will still be 743 million adults who are illiterate in 2015. And two-thirds will still be women. This comes at a purported cost of US$1.14 trillion to the global economy each year. (Source: International Literacy Statistics: A Review of Concepts, Methodology and Current Data)
