115 million youth cannot read or write

757 million adults, including 115 million youth, cannot read or write a simple sentence. Two-thirds of them are female.

Since 2000, literacy rates for adults (aged 15 years and older) have improved, reaching 85% globally, but sub-Saharan African and South and West Asia still have the lowest rates.

UNESCO pledges to “ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults both men and women achieve literacy and numeracy by 2030.”
