West Africa

West Africa is comprised of many countries that have suffered under colonial rule and corrupt governments. The boundaries between nations are often arbitrary and cut through ethnic group and language communities. Due to centuries of abuse, exploitation, and corruption, the nations of West Africa have among the highest illiteracy and poverty levels in the world. ILAD works among minority language speakers in this region to promote development initiatives, education, and mother-tongue literacy.
