International Literacy Day. All that you need to know

“Literacy is a fundamental human right and the foundation for lifelong learning. It is fully essential to social and human development in its ability to transform lives. For individual, families, and societies alike, it is an instrument of empowerment to improve one’s health, ones’ income, and one’s relationship with the world,” UNESCO states.

As international literacy day is at our door, we’ve collected the most important facts to stick your attention to this life-determining problem. Literacy day as UNESCO initiative has been around since 1966, but fighting with illiteracy goes back centuries. Don’t stay indifferent, check our infographics for the most up to date data and join the fight. Together we can make the world a better place. A literate place.
