Helping us is easy

To improve literacy rates in low income and developing communities we need all the help and funds we can receive. There are several ways you can help us fund literacy resources for communities in crisis, in honour of Jane.


Become a volunteer

We are always looking for exciting new people who can help us behind the scenes to achieve our goals. As a volunteer, you will work alongside a passionate team and help us with our fundraising activities and marketing. If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you.
