Up to 75% of children in deprived regions of 3rd world countries cannot read, that is approximately 250 million children worldwide. These individuals face a lack of access to necessary education. This leads to limited sanitary knowledge—resulting in various health issues and an increased risk of disease. Other issues include but are not limited to: gender inequality, economic instability, lack of environmental understanding, infrastructural challenges, and an absence of teaching positions. Believe it or not, this untapped potential translates to a loss of approximately US $129 Billion.
