Can you imagine not being able to read a newspaper, a road sign or directions on a bottle of medication? Sadly, this is a reality faced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living in remote communities today.
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) aims to raise literacy and improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australian living in remote and isolated regions.
This is done by providing books and literacy resources to indigenous communities and raising broad community awareness of Indigenous literacy issues.
The major fundraising day for this year will be on Wednesday 3 September. Join us to celebrate and raise funds on the day. Register your support now by clicking here or contact Robyn at the ABA for more information
