Literacy has undergone a learning process in itself throughout histories & societies, and has tailored to be a plural all-encompassing concept than a dichotomous one. Literacy acts as the foundation to enable interaction, and steps on to educating thyself, building bridges of experiences and hope. Education sparks passion to ignite the transformative spirit of our lives.
