Mark Zuckerberg

Dear Mr Zuckerberg,

I want to make Afghans literate by promoting organisations who support the education of Afghanistan. It is important because not only will it help raise literacy levels, it will also help prevent violence against schools, help increase the pool of qualified educators and reduce the amount of extremist curriculum, allowing for a more liberal and balanced curriculum. When something is wrong it has to be fixed, no exceptions. Literacy is essential to progressing in life, and to deny millions of people the ability to read and write is an issue that must be addressed.

I believe that we can use social media to show the lives some unfortunate children in Afghanistan are living. You can help me by encouraging your advertisers to put a budget aside into an annual fund for advertising awareness campaigns. This could change the way organisations operate, and without Afghanistan educational organisations spending the little money they have on advertising, they would have more funding for the very thing they are trying to aid, which is improving the lives of the incredibly poor and uneducated.

This campaign should be a priority because only 28.1% of the country are literate today. The more we wait the more chance there is of the Taliban or various other terrorist groups, using their power to force women and children to remain uneducated. I believe Afghan student Malala Yousafzai expressed it perfectly when she said “One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world.” Please help me to help Afghanistan’s illiterate today.

Yours Sincerely,

Khalil O'Keeffe

Action
must be taken if Afghanistan's education is going to improve. The person I have petitioned has been selected because he is the CEO of the biggest social media platform in the world; Facebook. This petition will influence Mark Zuckerberg because he will become aware of how many people feel strongly about improving literacy in Afghanistan. Follow my campaign because you know it will be a worthwhile cause to be able to educate a generation of Afghans. Together we can achieve an improved literacy rate in Afghanistan.
