This is a brilliant initative...Let's face it, the current wars on our planet are being waged against largely illiterate people who's only education has been war and more war with no alternative in sight...Your contribution to this cause may well bring a little sanity into our lives and a lot of unnecessary death avoided?

Every child deserves an education irregardless of circumstance. Education is the pathway out of poverty. President Obama please ensure through ONE and CGE as well as other program initiatives , that illiteracy will be replaced with standards of education far reaching and bringing hope out of poverty . Thank you.
