This document presents a progressive methodology that puts the learner at the center of a process that not only improves literacy, but also raises participants’ self-awareness and develops cultural pride. The Integrated Community Literacy methodology is based on local experience, and is flexible to accommodate the various needs of adult learners. In Guatemala, CRS has found that more literate participants in community development initiatives see better outcomes.
