Project Literacy is a global campaign founded and convened by Pearson that aims to end illiteracy by 2030 through partnerships and action. Watch our latest campaign video, Rewriting Lives featuring Idris Elba and Project Literacy campaign hero, Wanda Steward.
Rewriting books to rewrite lives
Almost one billion adults worldwide are illiterate. Wanda was one of these people, but she has spent the last 18 months learning to read and write, and now she has authored a children's book. Download Wanda's story and be inspired by a tale of bravery and imagination.
Our Theory of Change
750 million people globally are unable to read and write. Project Literacy is working to change that and close the literacy gap by 2030. Here's how:
Project Literacy is partnering with organizations that are already implementing proven literacy interventions and helping them to grow. Why? Because there are some things that we know work, and we need more of them.
In order to reach 750 million people by 2030, we'll have to find new ways to move faster and reach more learners. That's why we partner with innovators to bring game-changing literacy solutions to life.
UNESCO-Pearson partnership launches case studies of inclusive digital solutions
This International Literacy Day UNESCO and Pearson launched five case studies showing inclusive approaches to digital innovation. The cross-sector research is part of an initiative that aims to spur the development of more accessible technologies to benefit low-literate and low-skilled youth and adults.
Project Literacy is proud to work with over 100 diverse partners dedicated to supporting literacy around the globe. Here are just some of them.
