Literacy is power--the power to improve one's life and shape one's community. All people should know how to read and write, yet 771 million people (18 percent of the world's population) are illiterate. The programs described in this booklet address this challenge. They are samples of a few of the many hundreds of excellent programs around the world that are designed to empower people through literacy. The booklet describes programs in English, French, Spanish, and Arabic.
