Posted in: 

For over 50 years, the world has celebrated International Literacy Day on September 8. The day is an acknowledgement of the essential role that literacy plays in allowing people to succeed.

Anera is proud of its many years of dedication to providing basic literacy courses that have supported and continue to support hundreds on their journey to learn to read, write and count. Literacy is the key to self-development to finding opportunities and to live a better life. Let us always celebrate new skills that enable individuals and society to build a better future.
