Celebrating International Literacy Day

Celebrating International Literacy Day

September 18, 2017

The environment in which women can acquire and retain literacy skills is shaped by various forms of social, economic and religious restrictions and for poverty-stricken women in rural Bangladesh, the opportunity to study is simply not an option.
