Funding campaign launched for literacy

walk and run for others

On Sunday 24th February, 40 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 excellent Maltese literacy aid to 500 more adults and young people who would like to learn to read and write.

The 'iċ-Ċavetta' Maltese literacy toolkit is a project coordinated by the Jesuit-run Paolo Friere Institute. Each toolkit costs €70... and each toolkit will help one adult to read and write!

Our outgoing College Rector Fr Patrick Magro SJ and incoming Rector Fr Jimmy Bartolo SJ will join other Jesuits, staff and friends in the effort.

You too can help in one of the following ways:

  • You can DONATE ONLINE using our secure online donation facility
  • If you have already applied to participate in the Land Rover Malta Marathon, you are most welcome to join the Jesuits and Friends Team which will be raising funds for our cause by gathering donations and sponsorships. (Please contact to register).
  • You can send a cheque donation by post. Please send your cheque to the address below (kindly address cheques to 'Paulo Freire Institute') enclosing a note stating that it should go towards the 'iċ-Ċavetta' project:
