Funding campaign launched for 'iċ-Ċavetta'

walk and run for others

On Sunday 24th February, 42 Jesuits and Friends will participate in the Land Rover Malta Marathon in an effort to raise funds for the reproduction of the award-winning ‘iċ-Ċavetta’ Maltese Literacy Toolkit, which will offer literacy aid to 1000 more adults and young people.

This campaign will enable us to reprint the award-winning 'iċ-Ċavetta' Maltese literacy toolkit, a project developed by the Jesuit-run Paolo Freire Institure in Żejtun. We will also be able to train new trainers, upgrade our hardware and software, and offer the possibility to use the toolkit to more organisations who work in the field of illiteracy.

Our aim is to fund 1000 toolkits, which will enable 1000 adults or young persons to read and write. The cost of the project is €30,000! That means that it will cost just €30 to give this opportunity to each individual. Any donation is most welcome. You may read more about the 'iċ-Ċavetta' project here.
