Hi there from the ROPES 2023-2024 team! We're raising money to produce the 32nd issue of ROPES Literary Journal—a yearly, charitable, international literary magazine compiled and designed by the Masters of Literature & Publishing students at The University of Galway. While we wouldn't be able to produce this journal without the funds donated here, the majority of donations will be passed along to Galway Simon Community, our charity of choice this year.
Galway Simon Community is a registered charity that supports families and individuals facing homelessness or the potential to become homeless. They work both to prevent homelessness and to assist those who are currently living unhoused. It was particularly important for us this year, given the accommodation crisis in Ireland and across the world, to choose to gift these funds to an organisation that is working tirelessly to counteract the effects of the housing crisis. To find out more about their mission and their community action, please visit their website, here .
