We want to print our annual Student Writing Book in colour so our learners can see their stories in their full glory!


Every year we make a book of writing by our learners and give them copies. For those who have struggled with writing, it's amazing for them to see their own work in print. Some of them didn't do well at school because it didn't match their learning style, and some are speakers of other languages who are building their writing skills in English. They have written about their lives and their cultures, and shared a bit of themselves in doing so. They have chosen pictures to illustrate their stories and these look best in full colour.

The funding we get barely covers our tutoring, so we need support for extras like this.

If you donate $25 or more, we can send you a copy of the book. Please email us on with your donation reference number and an address, and we will send you one.

About us

Our provision is informal, friendly and learner-centered, staffed by specialist adult literacy tutors. Our programmes encompass reading, writing, speaking, listening, maths, financial literacy, basic computer skills and workplace literacy.

Use of funds

The money will be used to print our annual student writing book in colour. Extra funds will be used to print other booklets of student writing on different topics.
