Welcome to the Book Week Fundraiser for
World Literacy Foundation!

Join us during Book Week Australia from the 17th to the 23rd of August 2024, in making a difference in the lives of children in rural areas of Uganda who do not own a single book.

Our mission is to provide books for children in underserved communities in Uganda and set up 5 libraries in rural schools where children will have access to 2,500 books and literacy resources that will transform their lives forever.

Access to libraries and educational resources remains a challenge in many of these schools, especially in underserved communities like Kayunga where only 12% of primary school children can read.

Join us in spreading the joy of books and help to create a brighter future for children in Uganda. By participating in our fundraiser, you can make a direct impact on the lives of these children and make a positive change through the power of literacy!

How To Participate

Help children like Caroline ....

When Caroline goes to school, her schoolbag is not full of textbooks or pencils and paper. There are many obstacles in the way of education for children like Caroline. Studying at home is made difficult by a lack of the basic educational resources.

Caroline’s dream is to work with computers when she grows up. A donation to the Book Week Fundraiser means children like Caroline can access educational resources and her dream of working with computers is made one step closer by the power of literacy.
