As news of Australia’s bushfire crisis makes headlines around the world, many colleagues, customers and friends have contacted us to share their concern and offer support and well wishes.
The Sunshine Coast (where our head office is located) experienced several severe bushfires late last year—thankfully no one on our team was directly impacted, except by smoke.
We are a long way north of the current bushfire crisis in NSW, Victoria and South Australia, but it’s a distressing and challenging time for many Australians, whether we’re in the path of the fires or not.
Typefi is supporting the bushfire relief effort with financial donations to several organisations and causes.

Every year, Typefi’s Colombo team initiates a Corporate Social Responsibility project to enhance local society in some way. Our efforts can range from implementing environmentally friendly policies in the workplace to donating money or essentials to worthy causes.
We like to focus on helping kids in rural schools. Sri Lanka provides free education for everyone, and all the Typefi staff members in Colombo have taken advantage of free education, but often schools in rural and remote areas do not have access to the same resources as those in the city.
Typefi CEO Chandi Perera officially announced the launch of Enabling Accessible Publishing—a Typefi initiative that will help to make information more accessible to all—at the Frankfurt Book Fair on Wednesday, 10 October 2018.
The Enabling Accessible Publishing program will provide free Typefi software and services to not-for-profit, volunteer-driven organisations that are producing content in accessible formats for people living with visual, auditory, physical, or cognitive disabilities.
