INTERNATIONAL LITERACY DAY
SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2016
In 1965, UNESCO declared September 8 to be International Literacy Day. Since this proclamation, schools, communities and organisations have united around the world on this day to raise awareness in the hope that it will enable increased accessibility to education in developing nations.
The World Literacy Foundation’s 2016 campaign ‘The Sky’s The Limit’ is an exciting opportunity to participate in International Literacy Day, and promote the profile of literacy within your school and local community.
This year, the World Literacy Foundation has created an innovative campaign that aims to eliminate the digital divide for students in the developing world, and increase student engagement via an exciting digital learning platform.
Schools are able to sign up until September 7th. Ambassador applications close on August 8th to allow us enough time to review and select successful candidates. Please ensure that you submit your application on time to avoid missing out on this wonderful opportunity.
We look forward to hearing from you!
