    I have recently checked the illiteracy rates in my country and as much as they are not too high it is concerning because South Africa has one of the highest rates of unemployment and there is a direct link between illiteracy and unemployment.

    Reducing illiteracy as an individual activist seems to be an impossible task but it is really not, I for one think that organising literacy friendly events that encourage children and adults to get into reading is one way, such as readathons, library storytimes, book clubs etc in your community can help get the goal of reducing illiteracy started.
