Reading is a means to make Human Rights effective, mainly those related to full participation in society under equal conditions. Literacy is not natural but acquired, and it depends on many factors from personal capabilities to access to education from a geographical or financial point of view. Even in more developed countries where education is compulsory until adolescence, a growing number of children do not fully develop their reading skills. This fact makes reading a universal barrier towards equal opportunities. Learning to read is one solution to the problem, on the other hand, generating texts which are easier to read may also help.
