In contact situations between literate and nonliterate groups, those who are literate almost invariably have an advantage over those who are not. In situations where illiteracy has been institutionalized as a means of social control or discrimination, literacy is a powerful and effective liberator. It is a means of empowerment. In a sense, all literacy programs have an element of empowerment.
