Because literacy and essential skills impact employment, health, poverty and civic participation, developing partnerships is key to the success of the literacy field.
It is important to think about future trends when seeking out partnerships. Who are key players in my community? What are the ministries impacted by literacy? How can I reach these potential partners?
Taking initiative, open communication and building trust are the key elements in collaboration and if it is of strategic importance, it is always possible to turn a stakeholder into a partner.
The following workshops emphasize the importance of partnerships in assisting literacy programs and practitioners in spreading the word about the value of literacy. The workshops also provide ideas, tools and resources for developing partnerships, describing the benefits of partnerships and talking about the critical role of accountability within partnerships.
