The World Literacy Foundation is the STEP Private Client Awards Charity Partner for 2020.

The STEP  Private  Client  Awards  evening will take place on Wednesday 09 December 2020 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel. There is no entry fee to the Awards, but STEP asks for donations to be made to the World Literacy Foundation. Donations last year ranged from GBP 150 to GBP 2000. The evening will feature a charity casino with some fantastic prizes.

Your support has a direct impact on the lives of vulnerable children who are at the highest risk of a lifetime of illiteracy.

The World Literacy Foundation works to lift young people out of poverty through the power of literacy.  Since 2003, their work has reached young people in over 80 countries, and in 2019 over 250,000 children accessed our literacy activities. They have dedicated their time and efforts to the improvement of literacy standards across the globe, helping to better the life chances of children worldwide. Find out more:

Meet Angel

Angel, 8 years old, is a lovely student at Gulu Primary School in Uganda. Despite he is visually impaired, he is determined to learn. The audio-books included in our Sun Books tablets have become an alternative learning way for him.

Thanks to your support, the World Literacy Foundation can provide children in remote communities with educational and literacy resources to help them reach their full potential.

100% of online donations will go directly to fund our projects.
