I've been building up a thread on my Phonics International message forum to provide a flavour of some international events and achievements for world literacy.

Today (Sunday 8th Sept) is International Literacy Day and I think it is good to know about this day and to know of some of the work taking place around the world.

Some of the news articles rightly refer to the plight of women and girls when it comes to 'illiteracy' and inequality of a very serious nature - and also the need for world literacy to work towards world peace.
