For most of us, being able to read and write is the most normal thing in the world. But did you know that around 7% of Luxembourg’s population are not able to read, write or do sums well enough to manage in their everyday lives? What are the reasons for this illiteracy? What are the consequences in daily life? Is our school system the cause? What help is offered to the people concerned? A round table discussion on the subject of illiteracy organised by CSI Luxembourg at the University of Luxembourg (Limpertsberg Campus) on 29 November at 19:30 will provide answers to these questions.
In cooperation with Dieschbourg Mill (Moulin Dieschbourg) in Lauterborn near Echternach, CSI Lëtzebuerg is now selling fair-trade coffee breans from Peru. The proceeds go towards funding our project in support of women in Huaycán, a poor area of Lima.
