According to Camfed, there are about 800 million illiterate adults (aged 15 and over). That number is so big that it's hard to grasp. Out of the 800 million illiterate adults, 528 million of them are women. (Here's a world illiteracy map.)

You can check out Camfed's site for ways to help and also cool stuff like these short films by African women whom Camfed has trained in filmmaking.
