International Literacy Day Celebrates The Power Of Women’s Literacy As 4.5 Million Adult Women Are Still Illiterate In Nepal
PDF File Size: 31 KB | Download   
As International Literacy Day will be observed worldwide on 8 September to
celebrate the “Power of Women’s Literacy”, more than 4.5 million women in
Nepal still cannot read and write, keeping many of them marginalized and poor. In Nepal, as in other parts of the world, literacy remains an elusive target despite widespread efforts to address the issue. Worldwide, some 759 million adults lack minimum literacy skills; one in every six adults is still not literate and women make up two thirds of the world’s illiterate population. In Nepal, 6.4 million men and women are still illiterate and women represent close to three quarters of this figure. UNESCO joins Nepal in observing this year’s Literacy Day through supporting various activities such as writing competitions for neo-literates, rallies, talk programmes, the preparation of wall newspapers and street dramas, etc.; which all help promote women’s literacy, together with Non-Formal Education Centres,
Community Learning Centres and NGOs nationwide.
