Happy International Literacy Day. If you are reading this, someone somewhere helped teach you how to do it.
"On International Literacy Day each year, UNESCO reminds the international community of the status of literacy and adult learning globally.
Despite many and varied efforts, literacy remains an elusive target: some 776 million adults lack minimum literacy skills which means that one in five adults is still not literate; 75 million children are out-of-school and many more attend irregularly or drop out.
This year, International Literacy Day will put the spotlight on the empowering role of literacy and its importance for participation, citizenship and social development."
