1. The Slogan is Literacy! From revolutionary Nicaragua, early 1980s. The illiteracy rate in the country dropped from around 50% to around 12% in the first 13 months after the 1979 Sandinista Revolution.

    NOTE: The verb alfabetizar doesn’t have a direct English translation and means “to make literate.”
