The World Literacy Foundation is the peak philanthropy for literacy, and literacy is foundational to education and continuous learning. In recognition of the lag in learning and literacy development due to the pandemic, the World Literacy Foundation took action by launching the World Literacy Taskforce.

The Taskforce was launched in New York on September 14th, the week of the 77th United Nations General Assembly. 

The Taskforce has the bold mission of eradicating illiteracy in 10 underserved cities in the USA. Its efforts align with corporate America, the shared strategic intent of collaborating to boost literacy. Multinationals attended the inaugural Taskforce event, voting on ten priority cities and pledging to work with the Taskforce to eradicate illiteracy in line with the UNSDG #4 Education. See more…
