Today marks International Literacy Day, which celebrates the importance of literacy as the foundation for education and social development.
This week’s celebration includes a joint event with Reading Action Program partner USAID. Lion Linda Madden, wife of Immediate Past International President and LCIF Chairperson Wayne Madden , will visit with Lions leaders and partners to discuss Lions’ commitment to increasing literacy rates worldwide and providing all children, especially those with vision loss and other disabilities, with the opportunity for a strong education. Programs such as the Reading Action Program, LCIF’s SightFirst and Lions/Special Olympics Opening Eyes help Lions reach these goals.
A special blog post from Mrs. Madden will offer a recap of the events.
