Stories from community
We are a national book industry charity dedicated to lifting literacy levels in remote Indigenous communities, so all children across Australia have the same choices and opportunities.
Gifts engaging, new, culturally
appropriate books to communities that need them. We have supplied over 440,000
books to over 400 communities, 40% by Indigenous authors and illustrators.
Promotes early literacy and familiarity with books in children under five with a dedicated story-time session. Carers are supported to share books with their children in home languages and in English.
Produces and publishes books by Indigenous people for Indigenous people. These books are important because they represent culture, community life and language.
Your donation helps provide books and literacy programs to remote communities where they are needed most
$25 can buy three or more culturally relevant books
for remote communities. $300 buys packs of 40 books. $500 helps translate stories into first language.
Individuals or businesses
can help by running an event, donating a percentage of sales, or holding a Great Book Swap.
Become a partner and help us achieve our goals. Find out how your business can change the lives of children in very remote areas through sponsorship.
