Under the scheme Padhna Likhna Abhiyan NSS unit in association with Internal Quality Assurance cell (IQAC) of Pillai HOC college of Arts, Science and Commerce, Rasayani had organized a webinar on “Literacy Day” on 9th September, 2021.

8th September was declared International Literacy Day by UNESCO in 1965. The aim of the day is to highlight the importance of literacy to individuals, communities and societies.

Learning to read and write is a crucial part of a child’s development. Reading and writing are essential skills for adults. Being literate means that people can understand and follow written instructions, find out information online or in books, write letters and emails, and use the dominant symbol systems of a culture. It also means that a child or adult is able to participate fully in their community.
