Celebrate International Literacy Day!

 KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

This year’s THEME.

The United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared September 8th International Literacy Day during their 14th session in 1966, though it was first celebrated in 1967.  The idea is to not only promote literacy and bring awareness of its importance to society and the individual themselves, but to keep records of our literacy rate and ability to educate all people.  Unfortunately, we statics still prove that one in five adults are still not literate.  Worse, two-thirds of illiterate adults are women, and that is simply unacceptable.

The World Literacy Foundation offers great ways how you can get involved to make a difference.  National Today, also, has some great ways to observe this holiday.
