We need your help!

Remember your first book? How did it make you feel?

Here at SVP we know just how important books are for small babies right up to young adults. That’s why we started the WordPower scheme. We are helping to bridge the gap so that all children may have an equal start at school.

This Christmas, please help us to give a child the gift of reading, exploring new worlds and expanding their imagination. The scheme aims to empower families, provide encouragement to parents as well as giving opportunities to children to get them school ready.

What Shane Hegarty, well known children’s books author says about WordPower. "Giving a book is so much more than just giving a story. It is the gift of imagination, adventure, empathy, creativity, wonder and hope. A book can change a life, and thanks to the hundreds of books shared through WordPower, St Vincent de Paul is making the lives of many Irish children so much brighter." 5 euro will help us purchase one book for a child and 10 euro will help supply a pack of books for a family.
