What is a stakeholder?

Home News Cai Music Essays Training Vocabulary Teaching Plan Forum


A stakeholder in a language program is any person or institution who

  • has a controlling influence in the program
  • benefits in some way from the program
  • has an interest in the process and/or outcome of the program
  • has resources invested in the program, or
  • has other programs that may depend on the effectiveness of the language program.

As stakeholders grasp the vision of the language program, they can make additional contacts through their own networking.


You will probably need to do considerable networking with stakeholders before they are ready to engage in their own networking on behalf of the project.


Here are some examples of stakeholders:

  • Actual and potential users of literacy (development agencies and churches)
  • Community leaders
  • Local missions
  • Government officials and departments
  • Language committee members
