    1. I knew, in Kuwait, the illiteracy rate is quite low recently. According to a report in 2015 published by the Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI), about 133,473 people were illiterate, while 902,492 people were able to read and write but didn’t have any educational certificates and among males, the illiteracy rate was 1.07%, and for females, 5.02% https://kuwaitlocal.com/news/according-to-the-paci-statistical-report,-majority-of-the-kuwaiti-population-is-illiterate. According to recent report, the literacy rate stands at 96%, for males, the literacy rate is 97.1% and for females, it’s 95.4% https://worldpopulationreview.com/country-rankings/literacy-rate-by-country.

    2. Launch targeted campaigns to address illiteracy, using social media, TV and community outreach to raise awareness. Recognize the diverse population in countries and offer literacy programs in many languages spoken by the residents. Since I take my classes from a school in the US. To reduce illiteracy, I would propose my school to set up literacy programs and enhancing library services online or organize literacy events to promote reading and writing skills among students.
