We believe that literacy is the foundation for all learning and that basic literacies must include reading, writing, numeracy & digital literacy skills, to ensure that all adults & children have equal access and opportunity in the 21st Century.
What We Do
Literacy For Life is a global initiative, building sustainable solutions to address illiteracy amongst both adults and children which are relevant, appropriate to local language and culture, which can scale to meet the size of the challenge.
Use the Chekhov tool to write and record a dynamic eBook which can be used by learners across the globe to develop their literacy skills anytime, anywhere - even when there is no literate adult available to assist them.
