Did you know...?

 - That illiteracy went from 50% of the world population down to 25% of the people on this earth. 25% of us cannot read - however we have greatly increased the number of people who can in just a few decades!

- That the entirety of all of human knowledge ,from the beginning of our time to this moment, is now doubled every 18 months

- That the world's "extreme poverty" (those that live on a dollar a day or less) was around 36% in 1990.
As of 2005, that number was reduced to just 13% - a reduction of 23%. That is a lot of lives that have been improved!
