World Literacy Foundation + LiteracyPlanet
There are currently 750 million illiterate adults globally, and 12 to 19-year-olds make up a significant percentage of this number (UNESCO).
LiteracyPlanet is proud to partner with the World Literacy Foundation to join its Taskforce to help eradicate illiteracy in young adults across 50 cities globally by 2030.
