There are 757 million illiterate people all over the world.
Not being able to read or write makes it harder for you to have a voice in your own community, in your own country and your own future.
This is why we started the Unsigned Petition - with 757 million empty spaces - to help give the people living with illiteracy a voice.
Signing the Unsigned Petition means you agree that:
The lives of the millions of people affected by illiteracy matter
Helping raise awareness of illiteracy is an important global issue
More action is needed to tackle the effects of illiteracy
Sign the petition today for those who can’t.
Together we can help make a difference.
757 million illiterate people are more likely to be affected by these issues
Help them by signing the petition.
Illiteracy fuels poverty, hunger, radicalisation, the spread of HIV, child brides, infant mortality and gender inequality. And it has to stop. We want the UN to put literacy at the heart of every action to advance the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Read our open letter and sign for those who can't.
