The book provides a wealth of evidence-informed guidance on how to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate a pilot family learning programme. Combining a conceptual overview with clear, practical guidelines and useful pedagogical materials, it gives readers all the resources they will need to plan, pilot and sustain a successful programme in their own context.

It uses an intergenerational approach to literacy teaching and learning which can be adapted to local contexts. While the guidelines are intended to be of general use, and can be readily transferred to different settings, the focus is primarily on rural and peri-urban contexts of sub-Saharan Africa, where some of the world’s most vulnerable families live, and on the learning needs of women.


Learning Together Across Generations: Guidelines for Family Literacy and Learning Programmes was developed to support stakeholders in addressing the learning needs of communities and of disadvantaged families, in particular.
