In a world where more than 10% of the population can’t read or write, improving literacy rates must be a priority. UNESCO’s International Literacy Prizes reward groundbreaking programs that show the central role of literacy in promoting sustainable development. Through their exceptional projects, Prize laureates show the power of literacy to help individuals develop their full potential, and shape more sustainable, just and peaceful societies.
