Author Tara June Winch (Swallow the Air) spends a lot of her time raising funds for this organisation. Author (and my awesome friend) Bec Sparrow (http://rebeccasparrow.wordpress.com/) is getting onboard and has a target of raising $10,000 for the project.
What’s it about? Literacy. One of my favourite words.
1000.org is a non-profit organization that promotes literacy and education for girls and women with an aim to grow throughout the world. 1000 of the world’s inspirational writers, journalists and educators represent the diversity of languages, religions, regions and ethnic groups. The 1000 – ambassadors for the next generation of literate women, help to flag and facilitate literacy and education programs assisted by a global support network with the same aim: to liberate women, bearers of our future, through education.
