The Indigenous Literacy Foundation is a national book industry charity, which aims to reduce the disadvantage experienced by children in remote Indigenous communities across Australia, by lifting literacy levels and instilling a lifelong love of reading. They do this through supplying new, culturally relevant books and literacy resources, with an focus on early literacy, and publishing community stories, many in first languages. 

The Foundation's national advocacy and fundraising day on Wednesday 5 September, aims to raise more than $300,000 to provide over 30,000 books to remote communities. Visit our website for more information.
