  • Seven apps that aids quality education

Education creates the pathway to a smarter living. It holds the potential to completely change one’s thinking, aiding a better future and smarter personal and professional choices.

According to UNESCO, the global literacy rate for demographic aged 15 and above is 86.3%, for male demographic it is 90.0% and for female demographic it is  82.7%. Despite many efforts, there are still approximately 750 million illiterate adults, two-thirds of whom are women.
