Globally, millions of children continue to be marginalized by illiteracy. Despite progress made, literacy challenges persist, with at least 771 million young people and adults lacking basic literacy skills today.
World Literacy Day is celebrated every September 8 to increase awareness of and concern for literacy issues both locally and globally.
Literacy unlocks the door to learning throughout life, which is essential to development, humanity, and a better world. Literacy not only enriches an individual’s life, it creates opportunities for people to develop skills that will help them provide for themselves and their families.
As we mark World Literacy Day, let us recall that literacy for all is an integral part of education for all and that both are critical for sustainable development.
‘Transforming Literacy Learning Spaces’ is the theme for this year. This year’s theme is an opportunity to rethink the fundamental importance of literacy learning spaces to build resilience and ensure quality, equitable, and inclusive education for all. It is one of the most effective methods for rescuing socially excluded children and adults from poverty and integrating them into society.
To ensure no one is left behind, we need to enrich and transform the existing learning spaces through an integrated approach and enable literacy learning from the perspective of lifelong learning.
FAME Foundation calls on the Government, educational institutions, and individuals to rethink the role of literacy and pledge to transfrom our country and the world through the power of education and ensure literacy for one and all.
Let’s emphasize the value of literacy as a symbol of human rights and dignity.
