International Literacy Day is observed on September 8 every year to raise awareness and concern for literacy problems that exist within our own local communities as well as globally. International Literacy Day was founded by proclamation of UNESCO in 1966 “to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights.” On International Literacy Day, organizations and individuals take charge and use their literacy to encourage and assist those who are facing difficulties on how to read and write. Students and employed people volunteer to tutor children in the community, books are generously donated to libraries, and a student’s tuition and learning are sponsored to launch their life-long success. GD Goenka Public School, Rohini, Sector 9, family celebrates with pride International Literacy Day.
