Wyndham is the oldest town in the Kimberley and northernmost settlement in Western Australia. Over the past six years, our Foundation has supplied books to organisations in Wyndham and has made field visits to Wyndham Public School.
ILF delivered three packs of books to Wyndham Early Learning Activity Community Centre (WELA) last year. Jane Parker, WELA Manager, says that there are few books in family homes and the books they receive from our Foundation play a very important part in the community centre programs.
“The children, parents and other community members love when there are new books and we all enjoy our old favourites. If we did not get ILF books we would not have new books to enjoy,” said Jane.
“(I was inspired by) my time spent in remote Indigenous communities, and the ambassadorship of singer-songwriter Josh Pyke. In addition, the desire for this event to serve something more important than just the release of my music”
