“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope…. It is a bulwark against poverty, and a building block of development, an essential complement to investments in roads, dams, clinics and factories…. Literacy is, finally, the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realize his or her full potential.” 

Kofi Annan
