"Once you learn to read you are forever free" - Frederick Douglas
As of 2015 almost 1 billion people are unable to read worldwide. There are several ways to grow as a person, to experience the best that you are. It is indeed reading. So how do one billion people become better? They rely on the kindness of others such as ourselves to help them, not out of pity by any means, but as a means to lift them up.
