United Nations Literacy Decade: Literacy as freedom

Language: English

Convinced that "literacy is crucial to the acquisition, by every child, youth and adult, of essential life skills", the United Nations Literacy Decade (UNLD) was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2001. It aims to support the goal of achieving education for all by addressing the more than 774 million adults and 72 million out-of-school children in this world who are still deprived of literacy and of access to literacy learning activities.
