Why is this important?
Literacy is a human right
In Ireland, more than 500,000 people struggle with reading, writing or doing simple math. This means they may be unable to fill in a form, work out a bill, help kids with homework, use their vote or search the web for information. (OECD 2013)
This has a devastating impact on individuals, communities, the economy and our society.
Strong literacy will help build an equal society but we need your help.
