    Weʼve raised £2,000 to fund three brand new books for children learning to read in Indonesia

    Indonesia
    Funded on Monday, 1st June 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Reading is the Beginning! For over ten years our 'I love reading' program has been training and equipping teachers across the country teaching children how to read.

    Now we are writing a brand new series called 'Reading is an Adventure'. These early readers are perfect for kids who have just learnt to read and need practice. Stories about the minor adventures of normal life for Indonesian children draw children in to experience the magic of reading as they progress through four levels towards fluency.

    One new book costs around £25 to edit, £150 to illustrate and £700 to print 1000 copies. All profits from sales are reinvested into the program, so by printing and selling just 3 new books we will be able to kick-start production of many more brand new books from a growing network of local authors.

    Every donation is valuable to us. Thank you!

      I am so excited about this gorgeous illustration I have had through from the illustrator who is working on one of these books. It is so beautiful! I love the detail on the fruit. These red hairy fruit are called rambutan and are a favourite in Indonesia. This story is about a boy who goes with his dad and uncle to sell rambutan and ends up dealing with an ant invasion! This is the second of the three books to be illustrated and we hope to be able to print later this year.

      It has been a long journey since the first draft of our first book was written. Now it is nearly ready to print! The text is undergoing one last check, and illustrations are ready to be inserted into the layout. There are several more books on their way too, some waiting for illustrators, others still being edited. Please do share this page and let's see if we can get the first three fully funded! Thank you so much for all the support, shares and likes!! It is amazing to see how this is coming together 💛
