All literacy organisations are encouraged to join the World Literacy Council. Whilst there is no official annual fee, it is hoped that organisations will be able to support the world literacy council through an annual voluntary donation.
It is felt that small organisations (less than 20 members) should pay $10 AUD per year, medium organisations of up to 50 members $50 AUD per year, the remainder would pay a fixed fee of $100 AUD per year.
Any organisation unable to pay would not be adversely affected but it is only through Annual fees and donations and the generous support of UNESCO and other International Organisations that we are able to maintain our service to literacy.


We are the foremost body representing literacy NGOs around the world. Membership is open to all NGOs with an interest in literacy and provides your organisation with a number of benefits:
