International Literacy Day, observed on September 8, is a time to celebrate improvements in world literacy rates and at the same time, review challenges that limit progress. According to the United Nations, “at least 750 million youth and adults still cannot read and write and 250 million children are failing to acquire basic literacy skills. Pray for CBM’s literacy project in Rwanda — that many more people can learn to read and write and that more people will understand the need to support literacy programs globally.
