Today is Indigenous Literacy Day

On September 5, 2012

Today is Indigenous Literacy Day.

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 levels and improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australians 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.

There are many ways you can support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to ensure all Australians have the same opportunities to develop a lifelong love of reading.
