ProLiteracy Launches New International Organizational Membership
Posted on June 04, 2020

ProLiteracy, the largest adult literacy and basic education membership organization in the United States, announces the launch of the new International Organizational Membership program. This membership program will offer materials and resources that will aid in instruction for adult education internationally.

ProLiteracy’s International Organizational membership offers benefits designed for international member programs, including Laubach Historical Primers, currently available in Arabic, Hindi, Kikuyu, Kiswahilli, Maasai, Pashto, and Yoruba. The Historical Laubach Primers teach basic reading and writing skills using a time-tested method that has taught millions of adults to read. These materials were developed with teams of educators from Dr. Frank Laubach’s many travels around the world. International Organizational members will also receive access to the International section of ProLiteracy’s Education Network, a comprehensive collection of online courses and resources for adult literacy and ESL instructors, program staff, trainers, and adult learners. International members have access to exclusive resources.

“ProLiteracy is proud to be able to tend to the needs of adult literacy education on an international level,” says ProLiteracy President and CEO, Kevin Morgan. “There are 760 million adults globally who cannot read, making it difficult to sustain a level of self-sufficiency to escape poverty. ProLiteracy believes that a safer, stronger, and more sustainable society starts with an educated adult population.”
