We are currently fundraising £10,000 to buy a new e-library and e-readers for the Suhum MA Experimental C School in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

According to the project manager for the Suhum school:

"The pupils have adopted a positive reading culture because of the various and many reading materials on the e-reader.....the e-readers have teacher guides and teaching materials, we use them in preparing our lesson notes.

Because we’ve had the e-readers for close to 7 years and the kids have used them over and over again, the e-readers are seeing the effects of wear and tear. This has become worrying because pupils are now used to e-reading and become upset when they don’t get to use and e-reader. We would therefore be forever grateful if the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation could help to sustain the reading culture of our pupils by sponsoring us with more e- readers. Thank you.” 



As a thank you from us to you, for every donation made you will receive your own Jane Austen Literacy Foundation bookplate, personalised with your name and a unique serial number.

The bookplate is designed by Hampshire based artist, Richard Jarvis, and commemorates the two hundred year anniversary of the publishing of Persuasion at the end of 1817.  To find out more about Richard and his Jane Austen inspired art, click here.

Bookplates are a traditional way to indicate ownership of physical books and were commonly used during Jane Austen's time. If you prefer, you can nominate another name to be printed on the bookplate to give as a gift. 

After your donation is made we will send your personalised bookplate straight to your inbox.
