We at LEI are excited about people using literacy or ELM as a means for evangelism and discipleship. This sense of excitement is even increased for people who have successfully completed one of our training institutes. The Lord has used International Literacy Training Institute (ILTI) alumni in many parts of the world to further His kingdom through literacy and evangelism. It is our desire to keep in touch with as many of our alumni as possible and learn of their successes and struggles in their ministry using literacy or ELM. We also desire to provide encouragement and assistance. For this reason LEI is expanding the category of LEI Affiliate which provides a connectedness with Institute alumni worldwide. We would like to invite you to join our growing number of Affiliates in the task of diminishing illiteracy and thereby sharing the Good News with those who are learning to read.
