Literacy BridgeLast September an organization called Literacy Bridge began operating as a Seattle-based non-profit, taking as its mission
- to empower children and adults with tools for knowledge sharing and literacy learning, as an effective means towards advancing education, health, economic development, democracy, and human rights
- Information presented in oral rather than written form, so reading ability is not needed.
- Literacy training so that people in increasing numbers will gradually be equipped to make use of information in both oral and written form.
