Today, 8 September 2016, is the 50th anniversary of UNESCO's establishment of an International Literacy Day. The UNESCO Director General says, "The world has changed since 1966 – but our determination to provide every woman and man with the skills, capacities and opportunities to become everything they wish, in dignity and respect, remains as firm as ever. Literacy is a foundation to build a more sustainable future for all."

Literacy is seen as a human right, and a means of personal and social development – it makes an essential contribution to wide variety of goals like maintaining peace and promoting democracy, eradicating poverty, achieving gender equality and ensuring sustainable development.
