Commenting on this year's theme "Literacy in a digital world" the Country Director of Engage Now Africa an NGO, Cecilia Amankwa said the celebration is appropriate.
This is because technology has taken center stage in daily activities; therefore incorporating it into literacy programmes is a welcome agenda.
