Why do we want to combat illiteracy?
Poverty and illiteracy are twin sisters. In their combination these twin sisters are responsible for the fact that more than 20% of the world population lives in miserable circumstances. People who are poor and illiterate do not have a reasonable chance to escape the oppression of these terrible twin sisters during their lifetime. They are doomed to live their lives in misery.
As it is impossible for us to combat both poverty and illiteracy at the same time, we have decided to combat only one of them: illiteracy. By defeating illiteracy we want to break the fatal combination of the twin sisters.
We believe that people, who have been born in poverty but have obtained literacy as a child, will have a reasonable chance to also escape poverty later.
