Celebrate International Literacy Day
You can read the words on this screen, but the World Literacy Foundation estimates that 1 in 5 adults across the world cannot. On September 8, the United Nations' UNESCO highlighted the importance of literacy to individuals, societies and countries (and they've been doing it since 1966!).
Adult students at our six Open Door Learning Center locations come from more than 90 countries. Explore their home countries in the map above, and click on the pins to see the literacy rates around the globe.
