UNESCO honours Aga Khan Academies partner Concordia University with King Sejong Literacy Prize

In celebration of International Literacy Day, we are thrilled to congratulate Concordia University on being honoured with the UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prize.

The prize is given annually to candidates who have proven their capacity to develop and deliver mother-tongue literacy education and training.

Concordia University’s Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance (CLSP) is being recognized for their work creating and implementing the Learning Toolkit (LTK+)—a suite of interactive, bilingual multimedia tools available free to the education community in Kenya.

This work was made possible through close collaboration with the Aga Khan Academies, and with support from Aga Khan Foundation Canada and Global Affairs Canada.

“Rolling out the LTK+ would not have been possible without their generous contributions,” says Philip Abrami, professor of education in the Faculty of Arts and Science and founder and director of the CSLP. “We are forever grateful for the support of these dedicated organizations.”
