The NWT Literacy Council works with, and encourages, individuals, communities, governments, businesses, educators and others to support literacy in all the official languages of the NWT. It works with others to build capacity around literacy development.
Literacy and essential skills touch all aspects of our lives. They impact on our social and economic well-being, our health, our families and communities.
Donations are essential to maintain our strong voice for literacy and provide services in the NWT.
