There are 793 million illiterate people in the world (infographic)

On the 8th of September we celebrated International Literacy Day 2013, and not only UNESCO created an infographic to picture the state of literacy around the world.

The International Book Bank aims to increase global literacy by donating brand new books to charities in developing countries. The company made an infographic, which shows how much has to be done – and what to do:

Regardless of a person’s background, access to high-quality books propels the likelihood that they will learn how to read. That’s why at the International Book Bank, we’ve made it our mission to empower people in the developing world with free, high-quality books that they choose themselves. We know that when you look at the big picture it’s clear – books add up.
