UNESCO's Mobilizing Project to Combat Illiteracy: Igniting the Spirit of Exchange

Given the opportunity and a method, a community will respond to caring for its needs and has within itself the resources to meet these needs This statement summarizes the founding principles of the Bahay Tuluyan (Drop-in Centre) for street children in Manila. Expanding it to 'Given the inspiration, opportunity and a method' makes it reflect the philosophy behind UNESCO's mobilizing project to combat illiteracy. It is a philosophy which acknowledges that communities, be they rural villages or national governments, can find solutions to their problems, but often lack the initial spark and framework for realizing their potential.
