Ferreira Optical for Literacy

What is FOL for Literacy?

Ferreira Optical for Literacy presents an opportunity for us to make reading exciting, learning interesting and development a natural progression. “Today a reader, tomorrow a leader…” We aim to raise the level of awareness of the importance of literacy and education.

Why is literacy important?

The power of literacy is not simply the ability to read and write, but more so a person’s capacity to apply these skills to effectively connect, interpret and discern the intricacies of the world in which they live. Our biggest and most valuable resource is our people. Investing in the youth is an invaluable contribution to our tomorrow. FOL for Literacy represents a bridge between recognition, comprehension and analysis.
