Today is Literacy Day, established 50 years ago, today.

The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed September 8th as International Literacy Day in 1966 in order to actively mobilize the international community and to promote literacy as an instrument to empower individuals, communities and societies. This is now a part of the 2030 Agenda, as Goal 4.

Providing safe drinking water is a major part of acheiving these goals of empowerment!

Mr. Wayne will talk about how this is possible, and hopefuly announce the winners of this years' Literacy Prizes being awarded today in Paris at the UNESCO Headquaters.
