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, 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.
