Literacy Houses

In 2014 a new concept was initiated to help eradicate low literacy: Literacy Houses

To reach people with literacy difficulties, the concept of the Literacy House was developed. A Literacy House is an accessible location in a city that people can visit to work on basic skills such as reading, writing, speaking, numeracy and digital skills. Learners can simply go to this location to get information and/or support by both volunteers and professionals. A Literacy House may be incorporated in a library (which is the case for 80 % of the Literacy Houses). A Literacy House can be set up through a partnership between local actors and is supported by RWF. These partners vary by municipality or region.
