The epidemic has obviously caused us to reconsider a number of critical subjects, including learning and education. The topic for tomorrow’s Literacy Day, as designated by UNESCO, is “Literacy for a Human-Centered Recovery: Narrowing the Digital Divide,” with the goal of exploring how digital learning may be made more equitable and available.
According to UNESCO’s commemorative message, Covid-19 worsened inequality and unfairly affected 773 million illiterate youth and adults.
According to Statista statistics, Pakistan’s overall literacy rate (% of individuals aged 15 and above) in 2017 was 59 percent, 71 percent for men, and less than 47 percent for Pakistani women.
Literacy is an essential component of growth and development, and in a time when so many youthful people are falling behind owing to a lack of access to information, immediate national reaction strategies are more important than ever.
