Wilbur and Niso Smith Literacy Fund for Sub-saharan organisations: The Literacy Fund is open for application. We invite proposals from organisations working or based in Sub-Saharan Africa, undertaking projects to increase literacy levels in young people. You may apply for a grant of up to £2,500 GBP.
We believe that the value of a storybook is equal to that of a textbook and seek applications that make a creative case to increase literacy levels. In line with our wider charitable objectives, we will prioritise proposals which use the broad nature of adventure writing to achieve their aims.
You can see what we define as adventure writing here.
