International Literacy Day

Each year, International Literacy Day highlights the status of literacy and adult learning globally. There are now almost 4 billion literate people in the world, but universal literacy remains an elusive target. One in six adults is still not literate and more than 67 million children are out-of-school.

In 1965 the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared September 8 as International Literacy Day. It has been observed every year since 1966. This year’s worldwide celebration will focus on the link between literacy and peace. Find out ways that you can help and learn more about this day.
