ILF | SHARING | The Gift of Reading this Festive Season!

[Edited extract from public address]

How donations to our Festive Appeal help send First Language books to Aboriginal kids in remote Communities.

Imagine the thrill of a First Nations child when they open one of their favourite books and it is written in the language they speak at home!

That’s exactly what we live for at the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. We have already translated books like The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Where is the Green Sheep? into 14 Aboriginal languages.
"The stories that we have helped to publish are very special to their Community. Not only does it help engage the children to read, but it also preserves Language in places where it is not as widely spoken."
Reading is a human right and a skill that helps children to navigate the world around them. Abundant research shows that if you learn to read in the language you speak at home, you have more success learning a second language at school, like English. 

In remote Communities across Australia access to books is extremely limited. 

We need your help to make sure First Nations children in remote communities can access books, especially those that reflect their language, lives and culture

With gratitude,
David and the Indigenous Literacy Foundation Team
