Ministry of Education, Guyana

One of the most important life-skills a human being can possess is the ability to read and write. Literacy is the bedrock of human existence. And as citizens of the world, it is our fundamentalduty to equip ourselves with the necessary tools of literacy so as to enjoy a better quality of life. Sadly though, the world is plagued by significant illiteracy that affects large populations of countries, particularly girls and women. The struggle against illiteracy is a real one. Countries must do all they can to ensure that illiteracy is eradicated and replaced by the enlightenment of literacy to the benefit of all. In Guyana, through a number of strategic interventions organised by the Government through the Ministry of Education, we have made consistent strides in ensuring that more Guyanese are becoming literate.
