Illiteracy causes Poverty and
Social Life Development

n   More than one quarter of the world’s
    population is unable to read or write.

n   Millions more are functionally illiterate i.e.
    - they don’t posses reading and writing skills
      necessary to meet the demands of everyday life.
    - not limited to developing countries, it is also
      a serious problem in industrialized nations e.g.
      27 million in USA, 75% are unemployed.
Illiteracy causes Poverty and
Social Life Development

n   Lack of knowledge / Ability and Life skills
n   Unemployment
n   Health problems
    (malnutrition, personal health care etc.)

n   Social problems (criminal and reckless activities)
    - e.g. in India, many of the 40,000 fatal traffic
      accidents that occur each year are caused by
      truck drivers who can’t read traffic signs.
    The only one solution
      is to offer a proper
Functional Literacy Learning
for people as Education for All
Functional Literacy means:

     1. Being able to communicate at the
        critical thinking level

     2. Being able to develop quality of life
       (vocation skills, life improvement,
       ethics and morality)

     3. Being able to learn other subject areas
        and having life-long education
            Rotary’s Policy

n   The United Nations has identified illiteracy
    as one of the most serious obstacles to
    economic, political, and social development.

n   The RI Board, in 1986 made literacy
    a 10-year program of emphasis for Rotary.

n   In 1992, extend the emphasis to the year 2000
    and expanded the scope to address the issue
    of functional literacy.
         Rotary’s Policy
      RI President Glenn Kinross in 1997
set up the Literacy and Numeracy Task Force
     headed by PDG. Dr. Richard Walker
                 who introduced
  “Lighthouse Literacy Project” using CLE
   (Concentrated Language Encounter) for
     teaching languages to alleviate mass
          illiteracy around the world.

In 1985, Dr. Walker came to Thailand to help
 Dr. Saowalak at Srinakharinwirot University
      in Bangkok to develop and started
    a pilot CLE approach (Thai language)
in primary schools, Northeast of Thailand with
  cooperation of The Ministry of Education.

n   Later, the project received
    a 5-year 3H Grants from TRF.

n   The program proved to be successful,
    The Ministry of Education adopted
    the program throughout the country.
