The Indigenous Literacy Foundation works as an initiative of the Australian Book Industry with the support of:
Indigenous Literacy Day
Next year Indigenous Literacy Day (ILD) will be celebrated on Wednesday 7 September 2016.
What is ILD?
ILD is the biggest day in our calendar! Events and fundraisers are held all across Australia.
In 2014 we celebrated Indigenous Literacy Day in style at Sydney Opera House, with our Ambassadors Andy Griffiths, Alison Lester, MC Natalie Ahmat and 400 school children.
What does ILD aim to do?
On ILD we spread the word about improving literacy levels – and opportunities – for Indigenous children living in some of the most remote and isolated parts of our country.
The funds raised on ILD buy books and other literacy resources for these communities.
What happens on ILD?
