Paulo Freire

Dear Friends, We are very pleased to learn that you started an initiative in your country to raise awareness on the need to eliminate illiteracy which is in fact an important obstacle to human and social development. Part of Paulo Freire’s legacy is exactly the conviction that literacy and education is empowering people to transform themselves and their society. Paulo Freire’s legacy is also alive in civil society movements such as your initiative to create a literate and educated society in Afghanistan. Learning from other countries’ experience will be as important as creating your own approach to learning and literacy which needs to be adjusted to the specific context, historical moment, peoples’ needs and interests and existing possibilities and opportunities. We are convinced that you will be able to contribute significantly to this process with your campaign and we hereby offer you with whatever support necessary within our modest possibilities. ....

Yours sincerely, Moacir Gadotti
