International Literacy Day

International Literacy Day, celebrated on September 8th every year, is a global endeavor to champion the fundamental right to education.

Established by UNESCO in 1966, this day highlights the critical role that literacy plays in empowering individuals and entire communities. It’s a call to action to eradicate illiteracy worldwide, promoting the idea that every person, regardless of their background, deserves access to quality education.

From Dr Seuss, "The more that you read, the more that you know"

International Literacy Day serves as a powerful reminder that literacy is not only a tool for personal advancement but also a catalyst for economic development, social equality, and overall well-being. It’s an opportunity for governments, organizations, and individuals to come together, pledging their commitment to creating a world where everyone can read, write, and reach their full potential.
