The establishment of the NGO Coordination Network for Literacy and Non-Formal Education (NFE) is one of the main endeavors under UNESCOs LIFE Literacy Project for Iraq.
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:
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 a national literacy advocacy campaign.
