The UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy was established in 2005, with the support of the Government of the People’s Republic of China. It gives special consideration to literacy amongst adults in rural areas and out-of-school youth, particularly girls and women.

Established in 2005 and supported by the Government of the People’s Republic of China, the Prize recognizes programmes that promote literacy amongst adults in rural areas and out-of-school youth, particularly girls and women.

There are three winners of the prize each year. Previous successful applicants include The Literacy Movement Organization in the Islamic Republic of Iran for its ‘Consolidated teaching of literacy and ICDL basic computer skills’ programme, The Foundation Elche Acoge in Spain for its programme ‘Spanish as a second language for adult immigrants’, and The Citizens Foundation in Pakistan for its Aagahi Literacy Programme for Women and Out-of-School Girls.

In addition to the prestige of the award and prize, winners are given the opportunity to take part in a study visit to China.
