Today is International Literacy Day 2013. Run by UNESCO for over 40 years the event reminds the global community that literacy is the foundation of learning, and a tool of personal empowerment.
Literacy is a human right, but not all humans are equal. In India alone 287 million adults are illiterate. That’s four times the population of France.
Irina Bokova said: “Literacy is a development accelerator and a force for peace.” However, as much as 61 million children of primary school age don’t attend schools.
This wonderful infographic was designed by Antonio Di Vico and Louis Fourmentin for UNRIC (United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe) to celebrate last year’s International Literacy Day.
