Indigenous Literacy Day aims to help raise funds to raise literacy levels and improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australians living in remote and isolated regions. We need your support to help raise funds to buy books and literacy resources for children in these communities.

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) is an initiative and charity of The Australian Book Industry drawing on its diverse range of expertise, skills and resources. It works with the support of the Australian Publishers Association, the Australian Booksellers Association and the Australian Society of Authors.

The Foundation’s core aim and strategies to make a positive and measurable difference in the early literacy levels of Indigenous Australian children in order to raise their prospects in schools our key strategy is to draw on the collective resources of the Australian Book Industry and the goodwill of the public and corporate sector to raise funds for the purchase and provision of books and literacy resources for Indigenous Australian children in communities. Our secondary strategy is to assist in the writing and publishing of Indigenous Australian children’s experiences and stories.

In 2013 this day will be held on Wednesday, 4th of September and you can visit any bookshop and donate as little as you like to go towards this wonderful cause.
