Literacy, Children's Author & Eco-Resources

-- Quote of the Day --

"In today's world, some 774 million adults lack minimum literacy skills; one in five adults is still not literate and two-thirds of them are women; 721 million children are out of school and many more attend irregularly or drop out; and literate environments with access to reading material and suitable publications are lacking, with the result that neo-literates cannot sustain their skills."
~ Kochiro Matsuura, Director-Generalof UNESCO (Sept, 2007)
