Literacy, the ability to read and write, is the most essential skill children learn in school. This fact was recognized in 1965 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO) when it created International Literacy Day. September 8 is the day to remember the importance of literacy for individuals and communities around the world. The day also highlights the fact that not all children learn how to read. Literacy was the prime requisite for learning and played a vital role in restraining population growth, curbing poverty, establishing gender impartiality, and a bright promise for growth. Presidians were encouraged to opine about the day's significance through various related activities to achieve the desired goal.
