Celebrating the International Literacy Day (Sept 8th, ’15)

Tuesday 8th September was International Literacy Day, and to help Grammarly celebrate and promote awareness we are sharing their infograph (below). The International Literacy Day was first celebrated in 1966, but there is still work to be done in all corners of the globe, both in the developing and developed countries. You can check out Grammarly’s full post here.

Literacy Day

Ways to get involved:

Donate books

Donate money

Volunteer as literacy coach – check local libraries, possibly schools

Grammarly.com is a super site, concentrating on proofreading, writing tips, providing support for professional and non-professional writer, and providing support and awareness to those who need literacy support.

You can now check out Grammarly’s Plagiarism Checker, which will check your text with over 8 billion web pages in the help to prevent sections of your work that have been published elsewhere from being duplicated.

We hope you can all share this post, and help where you can to raise awareness for literacy.
