It is yet another September 8, a date set aside by the United Nations as the International Literacy Day to raise international awareness of and concern for literacy problems within communities. First celebrated in 1996, the day reminds the international community of the status of literacy and adult learning globally.
Brought home to my community in Ndokwa West Local Government Area, an oil bearing community in Delta State, International Literacy Day means more than being able to read, write and count. Of course there are lots of people that can do all that. What it should mean in my community is empowerment.
