Welcome to UIL’s LitBase


Experience exchange and knowledge transfer are crucial means of promoting literacy and numeracy efforts.

In order to encourage all key actors to share their experiences and gain inspiration from innovative approaches in the field of literacy, this website provides a selection of effective adult literacy and numeracy programmes from all regions of the world.

As the database is being compiled on an ongoing basis, newly uploaded programmes will be announced in the ‹News› section. We also invite institutions and organizations that are not currently represented in the database to submit a report of their literacy project in accordance with our guidelines.

We hope that this database will be of great value to all actors and stakeholders in the field of literacy and adult learning.
