2007 UNESCO Literacy Prize Winners Announced

Literacy projects in China, the United States, Nigeria, Senegal and the United Republic of Tanzania are the winners of the five UNESCO Literacy Prizes this year.

The theme for this year’s Prize was “Literacy and Health”, in particular, literacy related to general health care, nutrition, family and reproductive health and health-related community development.

Three of the five projects rewarded are projects focussed on women's literacy, empowerment and community development (China, Senegal and Nigeria).

The other two awards went to family literacy projects ~ a children's book project in Tanzania and a family literacy and health project in the US.

Thanks everybody for holding up your bit of the sky this week.
Have a great weekend. Until Monday...
