We believe education ‘opens doors’, and provides choices and opportunities for all children. At the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, we are driven to raise awareness as well as overcome the literacy challenges facing remote Indigenous communities.
When our Foundation first began gifting books to remote communities over 10 years ago we never expected to end up where we are today.
From creating early learning resources, to gifting over 440,000 books, and publishing 90 books in 18 Indigenous languages, we have been creating change. Our programs empower communities to tell their own stories, to read and write in their own languages, and give remote families what many urban and regional families can take for granted – access to books.
We receive no Government funding and rely solely on your generosity and that of our supporters and annual fundraising events. COVID-19 has meant that our fundraising events for at least the first half of the year have been cancelled, directly impacting our income by up to 60 per cent.
Now more than ever, your donation will make a huge difference!
This end of financial year, please consider donating what you can, and help us to facilitate literacy in remote Indigenous communities. With your help, we can continue opening doors to choices and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island children and families.
With your generous support we can all make a difference together.
“By reading the books with the parents in playgroup, the parents feel more confident about reading to their children when they get their copies to take home. They love them! Wonderful service! Great book choices!”
