Tuesday 8th September is the International Literacy Day. The theme for 2020 International Literacy Day is “Literacy teaching and learning in the COVID-19 crisis and beyond”.
Congratulations to those who one way or the other participated in activities commemorating this important day and best wishes to those who have deferrals in their programs.
This is a time to reflect on our journey together as family, friends and partners committed to promote the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights, and to advance the literacy agenda towards a more literate and sustainable society.
We all should be proud of ourselves in the work that we do because helping someone to read and write effectively or acquire the basic math skills improves the future of everyone in society. Literacy is critical to economic development as well as individual and community well-being.
Happy Literacy Celebrations!
