Click To Give Free Books

In conjunction with my D*E*A*R post, I am promoting the “Literacy Site” in the hope of uplifting Literacy rate in the world. I believe that literacy is the solution to poverty as it opens doors of opportunity and understanding that no other skill can provide. It is only through reading, writing and understanding that a level of communication is achieved hence, make a huge difference in every life. Without these abilities, communication, which is the key to progression, will fail.

At the Literacy Site, you will be able to help fund books for educating children around the world. With a click a day, you can help fight the spread of illiteracy, and change the world for the better.  It’s just a click away!

You can also pass this on to your friends to create awareness and help out children around the world become literate.

 World Literacy Facts*:

·  Over 780 million adults in the world are illiterate.

·  64% of the world's illiterate are women.

·  Nearly 60 per cent of the estimated 113 million children who do not attend primary school worldwide are girls.

· On average, nearly one in three children does not complete 5 years of primary education, the minimum required for acquiring basic literacy.
