Welcome to the NWILC!

          Welcome to the home page Northwest Indiana Literacy Coalition (NWILC) a team of people unified against eliminate illiteracy in Northwest Indiana. We focus our attention on the counties of Lake, La Porte, Jasper, Newton, Porter, Pulaski, and Starke.
         
          While there are many cooperatives assisting people with some sort language or education skills, we stay abreast of the variances and changes within those so as to fill the gaps. We understand continuity in education results in higher standards of living.

          Ghanaian diplomat Kofi Annan once said, “Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope.” We desire to bring hope to those within our reach. The World Literacy Foundation states, “Where there is illiteracy there is poverty.” ProLiteracy shows the facts as adapted from sources The National Assessment of Adult Literacy (Department of Education); The Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report; Bureau of Labor Statistics (Department of Labor). Low literacy is a global crisis that affects Northwest Indiana as well. That's why it's so important to understand the issues and confront the facts head on. Only then can we can stand together to fight for change.
