The UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy was created in 2005 through the generosity of the Government of the People's Republic of China. The purpose of the UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy is to reward the outstanding efforts of individuals, institutions, organizations or other entities for their contribution to the promotion of literacy, including functional literacy, leveraging technological environments, in support of adults in rural areas and out-of-school youth. Each of the three UNESCO Confucius prizewinners receives a medal, a diploma and US$30.000.
