Literacy affects everyone, everywhere.

Literacy allows us to understand, use, and act on information. It allows us to stand up for ourselves on issues that affect our lives.

Literacy is more than reading and writing.

Literacy is a human right

Literacy allows us to fully engage in society and be active citizens. It provides us with opportunities and is essential to developing an equal society.
