Literacy is Life

Foster literacy in British Columbia!

September is Literacy Month. During this month, we lead a province-wide fundraising and awareness campaign that is based around UNESCO’s International Literacy Day, held yearly on September 8th. Literacy is Life raises awareness of the importance of literacy, and raises funds to support community-based literacy programs and initiatives across British Columbia.
