International Literacy Day: A Look at Eritrea’s Progress

by Dr. Fikrejesus Amahazion
Yesterday, September 8th, International Literacy Day (ILD) was recognized and celebrated around the world. While the global Covid-19 crisis meant that ILD events were different than usual, the day remained an opportunity to focus on literacy and education globally. The roots of ILD date back to 1965, when the idea was first conceived at the “World Conference of Ministers of Education on the Eradication of Illiteracy” held in Tehran, Iran. The following year, ILD was founded by a proclamation of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), “to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights.” Then in 1967, the first ILD was celebrated. Thereafter, on every September 8th since 1967, ILD has been celebrated in countries around the world with the aim of highlighting the importance of literacy in our daily lives, bringing awareness to the many and significant issues around illiteracy, and advancing the literacy agenda towards a more literate and sustainable world.
