Tura ‘ya’yanka zuwa makaranta!

Today, 8 September, is  International Literacy Day. According to the UNESCO website,

On International Literacy Day each year, UNESCO reminds the international community of the status of literacy and adult learning globally.

Despite many and varied efforts, literacy remains an elusive target: some 776 million adults lack minimum literacy skills which means that one in five adults is still not literate; 75 million children are out-of-school and many more attend irregularly or drop out.

Here is an old cartoon in Hausa which I found  at the website of the UCLA Language Materials Project.  It encourages people to send their children to school.
