Support our work

One in six adults in Ireland has a literacy difficulty. With your help, we can change this.

Literacy is a human right

In Ireland, more than 500,000 people have problems reading, writing or doing simple math. This means they may be unable to fill in a form, vote, read instructions on medicines, add up a bill, help kids with homework or search the web for information. This has a devastating impact on individuals, families and communities.

With your help we can change this.
