Asia

Our affiliates in Asia form the connective strand that allows IRA to weave a broad and deep network of literacy leaders. In many cases, this network also provides a grassroots local connection for our international projects and a catalyst for activities that respond to their communities' specific needs. IRA activities in the region are coordinated by the International Development in Asia Committee.

Contact IRA or the Asian network of affiliates list below for more information.

The 2015 Asian Literacy Conference, with the theme "Role of Information and Communication Technologies in Promoting Reading and Developing a Learning Society," will be held in Mumbai, India, October 15–16, 2015.
