Today is World Literacy Day! 📚
As the world comes together to celebrate World Literacy Day, it’s vital for us to reflect upon the significance of literacy in shaping our lives and communities. Today, Step Up joins the global community in raising awareness about the critical importance of literacy as not just a basic human right but as an essential skills for the development of every individual.
At Step Up, we firmly believe that literacy extends beyond the ability to read and write. It encompasses a range of skills that mould our understanding of the world and foster critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication. We support our young people to further their literacy skills, to enable them to be able to continue with their education, gain new qualifications, and increase their employability.
In our fast-evolving society, literacy skills are essential for work and study, and we believe that every young person should be able to access the necessary support that they need to equip them with skills for life.
