Literacy is important to all British Columbians. But did you know that 40 per cent of BC adults don't have the skills necessary to read a newspaper, fill out a work application, read a map, or understand a lease...and this percentage is growing each year. Our goal is to change that & you can help!

The Group's Purpose

Literacy is important to all of us. By supporting Decoda, I am helping to create jobs, improve health, reduce crime, and build strong individuals, strong families and strong communities.

I am helping more British Columbians succeed in today’s modern world. Literacy is no longer simply the ability to read and write – Literacy is Life.

How to Help

I am supporting the Literacy is Life campaign, which raises awareness of the importance of literacy; creates a new, modern understanding of literacy; and supports community-based literacy programs and initiatives across BC.

All proceeds will stay right here in British Columbia to support community-based literacy programs and initiatives for people in over 400 communities.

Together, we will help create jobs, improve health, reduce crime, and build strong individuals, strong families and strong communities.

About the Organizers

I am joining Decoda Literacy Solutions, the only province-wide literacy organization in British Columbia. Decoda provides resources, training and funds to support community-based literacy programs and initiatives in over 400 communities across the province. Decoda’s work supports children and families, adult learners, and Aboriginal and immigrant communities in an effort to build strong individuals, strong families and strong communities.
