"What defeats poverty? Education.
What increases net worth? Education.
What helps race and ethnic relations? Education.
What creates harmony and peace? Education.
Re-educating people to live together and learn together
is the foundation of our future economy."
"One of the development marketplace's most cost effective ideas is helping people in India improve their reading by putting subtitles in their own language on popular music videos shown on TV ... such subtitles could be used worldwide to increase literacy and cost almost nothing."
-- New York Times
