Unsigned Petition

There are 758 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 758 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
