This year marks the 50th anniversary of International Literacy Day and UNESCO is celebrating it under the banner “Reading the Past, Writing the Future”. International Literacy Day 2016 celebrates and honours the past five decades of national and international engagement, efforts and progress made to increase literacy rates around the world. It also addresses current challenges and looks to innovative solutions to further boost literacy in the future.
Our ALEA local councils were involved in community outreach on and around ILD on 8 September. We are pleased to share with you a few of their stories in a special edition of ALEA Today.
