Improving literacy for sustainable development

Diney, Brazil

I want to learn new words – “At the beginning of this year I learned how to write my full name and now I want to come to school to learn new words and to be somebody one day. Sometimes I arrive early just to sit in the reading area and to look at the books. Now when I walk around [the neighbourhood] with my mother and grandmother and I know what is written in the signs, my mom says she’s very proud of me. I want to make her even more happy so that’s why I come to school every afternoon and I don’t fight in class anymore.” Diney, Brazil. Photo: Eduardo Martino/UNESCO
