Why Literacy Matters When individuals the world over learn how to read, write, do basic math, and use computers, they are more likely to lift themselves out of poverty, contribute to lower health care costs, and find and keep sustainable employment. Educated mothers have been shown to be more likely to send their children to school. It has been widely reported that a mother's level of reading skill is the greatest determinant of her child's academic success. If you or someone you know wants to work to improve their literacy skills for any reason, we look forward to hearing from you.
