International Theatre and Literacy Project

The International Theatre and Literacy Project use theatre as a means of social and educational uplift for children and teen-agers struggling with the challenges of poverty, crime, violence and inequality in developing countries throughout the world.


ITLP conducts theatre workshops to teach English, develop independent thinking, self-empowerment and gender equity. We strive to help young people advance their educational and employment opportunities and nurture their voices as leaders to enable growth, change and community development.


The International Theatre & Literacy Project (ITLP) inspires children in the developing world to discover their internal strength and personal power through theatre workshops that change the trajectory of their lives, fostering a new kind of leadership in their own community and country.




Location: Based in New York. Programs in Tanzania, Rwanda, India, Bali, Ethiopia, and South Africa
