The Write to Read Project is an equal partnership between participating parties with a shared interest in increasing the level of literacy among aboriginal people in British Columbia, and in building cooperative relationships between urban groups and rural First Nations communities. The partners include:
• The Lt. Governor of British Columbia and the Government House Foundation
• Rotary Clubs of District 5040
• First Nations of British Columbia
Trained professionals and trades people are also encouraged to contribute their skills and time to assist with the installation of these libraries. Professionals are welcome to contribute other skills appropriate to this project, including legal, dental, architectualand medical care. Companies and associations that wish to make cash and in-kind donations, are welcome to become informal Partners in this initiative. Information about various ways to participate can be found under the Contact section of this website.
The Library Response Team is a dedicated group of volunteers who are integral to the success of the project. Each library installation comes after months of gathering appropriate materials, checking and sorting, and processing. Core team members (the LRT) travel to the location of the new facility and spend long, intense days organizing and shelving the resources as well as training local people.To donate time, skills or funding, contact Project Coordinator Bob Blacker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
