Details of the country with the Lowest Literacy Rate:

South Sudan is one of the poorest nations in the world, with a 74% poverty rate on a population of 11 million people. The reason is a mix of foreign policy conflicts with bad bad weather, reducing harvests and creating starvation. This demand for food has created a need for kids to work in farms, not attend schools and that’s why only 31% of people can read there. Just compare, the global literacy rate is 86%.
