The Literacy Association of South Africa envisions a society in which everyone is literate and able to reach their full potential.
LITASA is a volunteer-run professional body with the primary purpose of promoting literacy. Through research, sharing of best practice and community collaboration, we aim to grow a strong literacy community. We bring together individuals and organisations using various platforms including our workshops, national conference, outreach programmes, scholarly journal, website and social media. We operate at a national level and have four branches working locally. We comprise members who come from various spheres at all levels within the literacy sector. LITASA is a registered NPO and PBO.
Let us guide you on your journey as a literacy professional. We can provide resources and learning opportunities to increase your knowledge and skills, help you to understand what prevents children and adults from attaining good literacy levels, connect you with experts, and give you a professional home. Your involvement in LITASA will help us grow a strong and vibrant community, which will help us achieve our ultimate goal of seeing every South African live a full and productive life.
