Arab promotion of literacy

1. Literacy and basic skills

The annual Arab award for liberated from illiteracy is an initiative launched by “Women and Society” in order to motivate the vital and active forces of society to participate on the issues of literacy, awareness-building and supporting lifelong learning as a way to build and support mechanisms of economic and social empowerment for women illiterate.

This is a good example of tackling the issue of illiteracy from a gender justice point of view. In fact, the awards and the dynamic that it provokes is a novel way of doing so.
