"literacy is a bridge from misery to hope. it is a tool for daily life in modern society. it is a bulwark against poverty... especially for girls and women, it is an agent of family health and nutrition. LITERACY IS, finally, THE MEANS THROUGH WHICH EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD CAN REALIZE HIS OR HER FULL POTENTIAL."
