Mobile Literacy

Making the provision of educational tools and programs portable

Implications - The issue of literacy is one social organizations are struggling to tackle around the world. In the United States alone, about 32 million adults lack basic literacy skills, says a report by the U.S. Education Department, and recent research has uncovered that over 900 million people in developing countries are illiterate. These staggering numbers have caused many literacy groups to take nontraditional action. Rather than waiting for illiterate consumers to reach out for help, these groups are hitting the streets, handing out books, teaching people how to read and even providing help on schoolwork. While still on a small scale, mobile literacy programs are a unique way to tackle this worldwide social issue.
