Global literacy in the digital age (infographic)

Regional distribution of the illiterate population

To celebrate International Literacy Day 2015, the team from Grammarly, the leading online automated proofreader, have prepared the infographic called “Global Literacy in Everyone’s Concern.”

Our world today is perhaps more text-driven than at any other time in history. In the Digital Age, the ability to read and write can transform lives, families, and even whole communities.

The first International Literacy Day was celebrated almost 50 years ago, back in 1966. Since that time millions of people, not only from the developing world, have learned to read and write through dedicated programs.

But there is still lots to do. In the U.S. alone, as much as 19% of adults who can’t read are high school graduates.
