AILWA is the first organisation in the world of "Conscience Keepers". They are the original "whistle blowers" who advocate and write on social, political and legal issues through the Letters Column in newspapers and magazines.

AILWA was formed in 1980 to evolve an independent forum of writers with clear thinking, to foster progressive ideas, to arouse our people towards action and results, to support preservation of good value system, to correct waywardness of mass media, to campaign for health education and cleaner environment, to encourage students and youth to be good writers, to impart good citizenship training and develop fellow-feelings in this strife-torn world.
