1622 literacy in bloom

Literacy in Bloom will address the lack of access to learning resources for unschooled adults, illiterate women and bilingual children in the developing world using Bloom - a free interactive software. The ability to read, write and understand numerical concepts has an enormous impact on a person’s life, as it is integral to social, political and economic empowerment. Literacy is essential for lifelong education and opens doors for a higher standard of living and self-esteem.

At a global level, statistics indicate:

  • 774 million adults cannot read or write
  • Two-thirds of illiterate adults are female
  • 220 million children cannot access education in their own language

Literacy in Bloom enables those with little computer experience and no internet access to write level-appropriate electronic resources in mother tongue vernaculars. These resources can then be uploaded to a virtual library and disseminated from phone to phone for others to read, whist additional features allow interactive learning through quizzes, games, comprehension activities, audio files and a facility for users to ask questions and send feedback.

Key Areas of Investment

  • Expansion of Bloom software
  • Development of interactive literacy apps
  • Online training programs in key Languages
  • Presentations and conferences
  • Workshops for Literacy and Development organisations
  • Monitoring and Evaluation
