A Practical Guide for Non-Governmental Organizations, Unesco Clubs, Associated Schools and Other Interested Groups: 1990 International Literacy Year, ILY.
This guide suggests a number of activities that can be undertaken to prepare for and take part in the International Literacy Year (ILY). It is directed to groups such as national ILY organizing committees; local, national, regional and international non-governmental organizations; Unesco clubs and associations; institutions participating in the network of Unesco Associated Schools; and other structures and groups with special affinities for and relationships with the United Nations system. The guide suggests activities under five objectives: (1) increasing action by governments of member states afflicted by illiteracy or functional illiteracy to eliminate these problems; (2) increasing public awareness of the scope, nature, and implications of illiteracy as well as of the means and conditions for combating it; (3) increasing popular participation within and among countries to combat illiteracy; (4) increasing cooperation and solidarity among member states in the struggle against illiteracy; and (5) increasing cooperation with the United Nations system and among all inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations in the struggle against illiteracy.
