Lost Potential Tracker

The Lost Potential Tracker is a real-time counter, racking up the number of children who reach their 10th birthday and cannot read and understand a simple story.

If we do not act today, millions more children around the world will miss the chance to fulfil their potential. This will not only be devastating for individuals, but will have an outsized impact on communities, countries, and economies.

The scale of the challenge is large, but not impossible. We know what must be done. The Tracker also shows us how we can change the story.
