Indigenous Literacy Day 2012

Due to lack of resources & funding, low levels of indigenous literacy has hindered the lives of many of Australia’s Indigenous people.

Low levels of literacy can lead to education and employment barriers, social isolation, and personal insecurity. Statistics show that only 15% of Indigenous Australians in the Northern Territory meet the minimum literacy benchmark. 33% of indigenous Australians aged 15 and over will face considerable difficulties in their lives due to their literacy skills.

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation helps Indigenous Australians in remote areas learn to read.  Your donation is important to help keep the vision of the ILF alive, so that more books can be provided to children across the nation.
