FSFRL International Literacy Week Events & Giveaway

FSFRL International Literacy Week

The Fantasy & Sci-Fi Readers Lounge (FSFRL) is celebrating International Literacy Day all week!

September 8 was declared International Literacy Day (ILD) by UNESCO on October 26, 1966. It was celebrated for the first time in 1967. The goal is to highlight the importance of literacy to individuals, communities, and societies. Celebrations take place in several countries, and the FSRL is joining in the fun!

Among other things we’re hosting discussions about literacy, why it’s important, and hosting a fundraiser and giveaway. The funds raised will be donated to the World Literacy Foundation. 

What Is The World Literacy Foundation?

Andrew G Kay began school in 1966 unable to read. As reading was introduced to him, he realized the power of literacy, and its importance in combating poverty. 

According to the World Literacy Foundation’s website, 1-in-5 people in the world cannot read or write.

They have projects in 80+ countries that are trying to change those statistics. With the help of partners around the world, volunteers and donors, they’re making a difference.

"Last year, we reached more than 350,000 children and young people with our services in USA, Australia, UK, Africa, and Latin America. I am satisfied and keen to continue working for literacy and education for children because I strongly believe literacy is the vehicle, the pathway to young people reaching their full potential."

FSFRL Literacy Week Giveaway

As readers, we all support literacy. So, the authors of the Fantasy & Sci-Fi Support Group decided to take it one step further.

We have gathered together, and donated a total of 22 eBooks to giveaway to one lucky participant! 

We’re asking entrants to help support the WIL with a donation (if you can), but it is not a requirement to be entered.

This fundraiser will last from September 8th to the 21st.
