International Literacy Day!

Posted on Updated on

Unesco celebrates International Literacy Day every year on September 8.

This is an opportune time to reflect on the importance of educational, scientific and cultural developments.

Basic literacy skills among children and adults are paramount to communities and societies. 


We owe much to some amazing trend setters, such as Helen Keller and Maria Montessori for their ground breaking efforts within education and Shakespeare, Twain and Dickens for their competencies within literary arenas.
