Abstract (200 Character Limit) : 

In the spirit of the theme for UNESCO’s 50th Anniversary International Literacy Day - Future Directions: Innovations, Tools, and Resources for Global Literacy - USAID and the Global Reading Network hosted technical training sessions on September 9, immediately following International Literacy Day on September 8. 

During these sessions, participants learned about technical issues that are shaping the future of literacy programming, emphasizing quality education, access, and the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals - including the goal that all children learn to read. Ministry representatives, implementing partners, multi-national donor partners, and other stakeholders will contribute to these sessions - looking at solutions to the barriers of the past and envisioning a world in which all children will be proficient readers.
