Can you read this sentence?
Approximately 800 million people in the world can't.
Yes, that's right. Today, there are approximately 800 million people in the world who cannot read or write and may struggle to earn their livelihood because they are not able to fully participate in society.
The International Literacy Association wants to change this, and we need your help!
For the past 60 years, we've provided teachers and leaders like you with the resources and expertise to support and inspire your students and each other. We've replaced reading with literacy in our name, to become the International Literacy Association, because it's our cause, our passion, and our reason for being.
We work tirelessly to empower others through literacy, and we know you do, too. As leaders and educators, you are on the front lines of literacy learning. We want to empower you with the practical resources and the supportive community you need to transform lives through literacy!
