Babies, children, teenagers and adults need to be educated even if its at a basic level. If we start to teach children at a young age about the environment, the inequality that still exists, and the things that affect the earth in a negative manner we can see the positive impact that starts from there. It is important to understand how much of an effect literacy has. Not just about reading or writing but learning and critically analyzing about what's going on. Gaining knowledge is one of the most powerful tools one can have. It is only if one is literate can they also understand even more adverse effects that may occur. Therefore I believe this one small step for literacy gives everyone the power of knowledge and truth that can then help them understand problems and help us race towards better sustainable solutions. Starting small always ends up big, but starting small with literacy ends up with a huge positive factor for everybody.
