West Africa Savanna Literacy

Region: West Africa

Transformational development through Mother tongue literacy

Our team envisions the favorable transformation of an entire language community on the West African savanna – transformation in health, economics, and education. With the good will and collaboration of this community, we endeavor to build a permanent infrastructure of mother-tongue literacy upon which enduring societal development may be mounted.

This infrastructure will be in place when the following exists:

  • One hundred new authors, published in the region’s language
  • One hundred volunteer literacy teachers
  • A public library and a literature sales outlet in all fifty of the region’s key municipalities
  • An established regional publishing institution
  • One hundred literary clubs
  • A K-12 alternative education system in the region’s local language
  • The African Solutions Institute: genuine African scholarship for African development
