Caribbean

Our affiliates in the Caribbean 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 the Caribbean Committee. To contact them, e-mail Sandra Thomas at thomas.sandra@yahoo.com
