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.
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.
