September 8 is the 50th anniversary of UNESCO’s International Literacy Day commemorating efforts to increase literacy rates throughout the world.  The day is also a call to action to continue making progress—and overcome the challenges that remain in closing the literacy gap worldwide. UNESCO sees increasing literacy as an important goal because it helps empower individuals and communities, and assists in closing the resource gaps in society by fostering a desire for lifelong learning.
