7 SepLiteracy is a right, not a privilege (World Literacy Day - 2018)
Category : Academic
While most of us can read and write, we tend to take this aspect of "human rights" for granted. It is still an undiscovered place for many, therefore it is still a journey to be completed. Literacy is not limited to reading, writing, and numeracy skills anymore but is now seen as a process of lifelong development to achieve dignity and a decent livelihood. On September 8th, 2018 the globe commemorates the 52nd International Literacy Day. It was first declared and observed by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1966.
