IBM ALL EYES: Living with Illiteracy - overview
We would like to help illiterate and functionally illiterate people connect to the rest of the world. By engaging this large portion of population, without the conventional education as a missing component, we can empower individuals for a better and more equal world; one in which there is more economic growth for developing countries, one which has moved one more step towards democracy and one with more transparency, better education, more cultural development and more gender equality.
When we empower the individuals, we empower the families and the children, the next generation, consequently. We are going to utilize the power of low-cost electronic gadgets and the web, to engage underprivileged people to fill the gap between illiterates and their surrounding world.
