Skills for encoding and decoding of written and verbal information through reading and writing are a key factor to enrich the communication capabilities of the individual, and creates prerequisites for a comprehensive, multilateral expansion of the human horizons as well as for the building of humans personality. The formation of a common literacy today is the task of elementary school education, within which generate correlations between reading and writing - the two main branches of literacy. Studies show that lack of general literacy continues to be a factor for the presence of social and financial divisions in society, leading in turn to informational and digital exclusions. This article presents the results of a study of the correlation between the process of formation of initial literacy, the motivation for the subsequent enrichment of knowledge through reading and the influence of these processes on the future development of the personality. The target group of the study is the minorities in Bulgaria, whose children often drop out of the educational system. The results show that a lack of approach and a personal example of building a literacy are two the main factors for the lack of motivation and desire to build new knowledge among minorities. The approach to addressing the barriers in the process of building a basic literacy and remaining in the education system includes measures to creating additional incentives for the target group and multidisciplinary (social, pedagogical and psychological) work with the people in risk.
