Today's post lines up with my daily Tweet. American philosopher Allan Bloom once said, "Education is the movement from darkness to light." This quote effectively and simply shows the true goal of promoting global literacy and education: bring people out of the shadows and into the light. Education opens doors and gives people opportunities that they never could have had before: the ability to get a well-paying job, take charge of their own finances, stay connected with the greater global community, and most importantly, help protect their family from disease and violence. Education can bring hope to those who have none and a chance at a brighter, healthier, better future to hundreds of thousands of children, if only we can bring it to them.
