"If every child left school with basic reading skills 171 million people would be lifted out of poverty"
- Unesco 2010
Imagine being unable to read a simple bedtime story to your own child. If you can, then you can now feel what it is like to be illiterate. Now imagine what it must feel like to be trapped in a cycle of illiteracy. You can't read because your parents couldn't read and now your inability means your children can't read. As a family you are trapped in the poverty cycle. If you can successfully imagine this, you can now imagine yourself as 1 of the 300 Million illiterate adults that call India home.
