FMA celebrates International Literacy Day, hopes for better digital literacy education among youth
In celebration of International Literacy Day, FMA reminds us to recognize the profound impact of literacy on individuals and communities worldwide. Literacy is beyond the ability to read and write; it is a gateway to knowledge, empowerment, and social progress.

Having access to education means having the chance to unlock opportunities and participate meaningfully in civic life. But in many parts of the world, accessing quality education remains a huge problem, leaving millions of children with poor basic literacy skills.
