The establishment of a Literacy Network for Iraq responds to the main need of ensuring effective coordination as well as implementation of literacy and life skills programs. The main objectives of creating a mechanism for the coordination and capacity building of NGOs and civil society actors working in literacy and NFE are:
• Support National NGOs and Government of Iraq in the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of effective literacy programs
• Build partnerships amongst literacy and NFE stakeholders in Iraq and provide input to the drafting of a National Policy on Partnership and Community Mobilization for literacy and NFE;
• Increase access to quality literacy and non-formal education through innovative literacy and NFE programming.
• Ensure coordination for the launch of national literacy advocacy campaigns.
