Literacy Initiative for Empowerment

Within the framework of the UNESCO Literacy Initiative for Empowerment (LIFE) and in order to meet the Paris Conference recommendations, the proposed intervention will strengthen the human and institutional capacity to deliver quality non-formal education (NFE) and literacy programmes at the central and governorate (provincial) level. UNESCO will work in close collaboration with the Ministries of Education (MoEs), the newly established National Literacy Resource Centre (NLRC), the governorate level Directorates of Education (DoEs), NGOs and local communities in order to achieve the overall Education for All (EFA) development goal to reduce illiteracy by 50 per cent by 2015.
