Celebrating International Literacy Day 

"Since 1967, International Literacy Day (ILD) celebrations have taken place annually around the world to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights, and to advance the literacy agenda towards a more literate and sustainable society." - UNESCO
As a supporter of LVCA, we thank you for your commitment to literacy in our community.
You can celebrate this day by continuing to support LVCA's mission. Please help spread the word about our programs and the students we serve. Financial contributions are also always appreciated. Please donate if you can.
