Project Literacy is proud to showcase the true stories of adults who have taken the courageous step to learn to read and write. Immerse yourself in their journeys, write them messages of support, and find out how you can “give your word” to help advance the virtuous cycle of literacy and give 758 million people the opportunity to read and write.
Project Literacy is a global campaign founded and convened by Pearson to make significant and sustainable advances in the fight against illiteracy by 2030 so that all people - regardless of geography, language, race, class, or gender – have the opportunity to fulfill their potential through the power of words.
