International Literacy Day

 International Literacy Day 

September 8, 2022 

“Education is the most powerful weapon for changing the world.” as said by Nelson Mandela.

This year's International Literacy Day will be celebrated worldwide under the theme, "Transforming Literacy Learning Spaces” International Literacy Day is celebrated on 8 September every year. With literacy and knowledge, we can remove the darkness of the mind and enlighten it for a brighter future. International Literacy Day is an occasion to give hope to the millions of women, men and children who cannot read or write even their own names. It is a timely reminder to the world about the importance of literacy for individuals, families, communities and whole societies. Government of all countries organize programs to create awareness in people about literacy. The government also forces people to get the necessary education and send their children to school

  • • Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan” was launched in the year 2001. The main aim of this was, those children between the age group of 6-14 years must join a school and complete the education 
  • • For women, our government also launched schemes like – “Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya Yojana” and recently launched “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Yojana”. 
  • • From and during the Covid Days, our Prime Minister conducted “Pradhan Mantri Gramin Digital Saksharta Abhiyan” in which digital literacy will be promoted in rural areas free of cost. 
  • • As a teacher of STEM World School I strongly feel that parents have an important role in the development of children but if the parents are illiterate, they are not able to cope with the needs of new century and their children suffer. So, such program must be organized which teach the parents to read and write. Such steps must be taken that any child should not be deprived of going to school. This is their right to get education. 

Every year our students at STEM World School take initiative to literate atleast one illiterate person. And they achieve this in form of an activitiy. Our students of STEM World School teach atleast one illiterate person to write his/her name. Our school's prime objective behind this is to teach the students something beyond the materialistic learning. To give them the ultimate satisfaction that they have taught a person to write their name. 

As a teacher of STEM World School, I feel whenever we get a chance of teaching someone, we should teach. It will give great feeling of satisfaction. 

“Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.” as said by Malala Yousafzai
