International Literacy Day 2021 is celebrated on September 8. The day as the name suggests aims at making more and more people aware about the importance of literacy for each individual. This year the theme of the day has been finalised as ‘Literacy for a human-centered recovery, Narrowing the digital divide.’
This theme has been kept as due to coronavirus, many children across the globe were unable to access education online for lack of equipment like phones and laptops. It is in such times that the importance of literacy has increased by many folds as individuals will now have to step in and help those who have lost touch with education. The first International Literacy Day was held in 1966. The day came into being because of the efforts put in by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
