We see the need to implement targeted advocacy as essential to ensure that literacy is part of broader education policy discussions. We believe that these discussions must include pre-literacy health, family involvement and student accessibility.


Creating global awarenessOur research and monitoring of literacy activities around the globe continues to show a strong focus on best practise in literacy teaching and delivery, as well as measurement of learning outcomes. As a key global body for literacy we provide instruction, advice and guidance. Through research and reporting we deliver a strong evidence base for why universal literacy is fundamental for an individual and country’s success.


We believe that one of the most important methods of improving education standards around the world is to spread the word about the importance of literacy. The more people that agree that education is the most important tool that we have to fight poverty, the greater chance we have of making a life-changing difference to the  774 million people who are illiterate.
