Mikhail Peleg highlighted the pivotal role literacy plays in promoting peace, stability, social and economic reconstruction in vulnerable regions around the globe.
PARIS, FRANCE, October 04, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Esteemed entrepreneur Mikhail Peleg recently attended the International Literacy Day (ILD) event, which was held at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, on September 8, 2023. The theme for this year’s ILD was “Promoting literacy for a world in transition: Building the foundation for sustainable and peaceful societies.” Peleg highlighted the critical role of education in the modern world and the pressing need to eradicate illiteracy worldwide.
In his address, Mikhail Peleg drew attention to the staggering statistics concerning global education disparities. Approximately 244 million children and youth worldwide remain out of school, while a staggering 763 million adults lack basic literacy skills. UNESCO data predicts that to achieve universal primary and secondary education by 2030, we will require an estimated 69 million teachers.
As an accomplished entrepreneur with a deep-rooted passion for education, Mikhail Peleg has been increasingly dedicating his philanthropic efforts to addressing the issue of illiteracy on a global scale. His commitment to education and its transformative potential has led him to embark on the launch of his own non-profit initiative focused on empowering underprivileged communities through access to education.
During the ILD event, Mikhail Peleg expressed his intent to collaborate with renowned charities, such as the Clinton Foundation or the International Literacy Association. By partnering with established organizations, Peleg aims to facilitate access to education, opportunities, and resources that will foster the development of vital skills in reading, writing, communication, and critical thinking among children worldwide.
Peleg emphasized the paramount importance of education, especially in crisis-affected regions of the world. Education stands as a beacon of hope, offering the best path forward to building peaceful societies. In crisis-affected regions, where conflict and instability disrupt lives and perpetuate cycles of poverty, education becomes even more critical.
Literacy, in particular, plays a pivotal role in promoting peace, stability, social and economic reconstruction, and overall development in regions grappling with crises. Providing accessible and quality education in these areas is not only a matter of empowering individuals but also a crucial step towards nurturing resilient communities capable of overcoming challenges and embracing progress.
Mikhail Peleg offered his perspective on the significance of literacy development in conflict-affected regions. By empowering individuals with the ability to read, write, and access knowledge, literacy not only opens doors to economic opportunities but also promotes understanding, tolerance, and empathy among diverse communities. It serves as a catalyst for positive change and facilitates social cohesion in times of turmoil.
Peleg’s participation at the ILD event showcased his unwavering commitment to making education a fundamental right accessible to all. As he continues to advocate for literacy initiatives globally, his efforts align with UNESCO’s mission to build a world where education becomes the cornerstone for a sustainable and harmonious society.
Through his philanthropic endeavors and dedication to education, Mikhail Peleg aspires to create a lasting impact, igniting the spark of knowledge and compassion that will drive the world towards a brighter, more equitable future for all.
