International Programs

ProLiteracy works through a global network of 32 partner programs in 27 countries in Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Partners are local nonprofit organizations ranging from basic adult education programs to non-literacy entities, such as health organizations, human rights agencies, or community libraries. We provide teacher training, capacity building, and grants to support literacy instruction and the creation of content for instruction in the native language. ProLiteracy partner programs link literacy education with various areas of community development, including economic self-reliance, health, education, environment, human rights/status of women, and peace and democracy. Our approach has always been to adapt, translate, and localize literacy materials to reflect the needs and realities of the learners. We continue to work with our partners in this way and are committed to promoting literacy as a cost-effective and sustainable solution to addressing the most serious social and economic problems facing our world.
