The National Agency for Fighting Illiteracy (Agence Nationale de Lutte Contre Illettrisme, ANLCI), created in 2000 in France, federates and optimises the energies, actions and resources of all the stakeholders, volunteers and professionals, policy-makers and actors involved in the fight against illiteracy. Its core mission is to ensure that the guiding principles of the fight against illiteracy are well known to all, taken into account, and deep-rooted in policies and practices: prevention, education, adult training, the professional world, integration, social action and culture.
At the national level
The Board of Directors brings together ministries, public agencies, local authorities, companies and social partners to decide on priorities. The Advisory Committee represents civil society and brings together all those who have a role to play in preventing and fighting illiteracy: family and parents’ associations, professional organisations, trade unions and associations.
At the local level
According to the priorities defined by the board and supported by the national team, the national guidelines and the illiteracy assessments, the ANLCI’s regional project leaders draft, implement and monitor regional anti-illiteracy plans, associating all local stakeholders.
The ANLCI uses its Permanent Forum on Practices to publicise and share successful practices in all areas and to develop professionalisation processes.
