Africa

Our affiliates in Africa form the connective strand that allows ILA to weave a broad and deep network of literacy leaders. In many cases, this network also provides a grassroots local connection for our international projects and a catalyst for activities that respond to their communities' specific needs. Many ILA activities in the region are coordinated by the International Development in Africa Committee. To contact them, email Margaret Muthiga, mmuthigaus@yahoo.com.

Contact ILA or an affiliate listed below for more information.
