Today there are 1.2 billion people around the globe who are illiterate largely due to a lack of access to education. 72% of those illiterate are women. Providing access to education for even one remote village can change the lives of hundreds of children living in poverty year-after-year. Make a donation to WIHI's buildOn chapter campaign and help to break this cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education!
Nicaragua still has 30.3% illiteracy, the highest rate in Central America after Guatemala, according to 2012 information from the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).
