February 6th, 2015 saw previous Governor-General of Australia - Quentin Bryce adopted into the ILF hall fame as many wonderful souls gone before her. The Honourable Quentin Bryce AD CVO will work tirelessly to bring about new levels of funding and awareness for indigenous communities across Australia.
"We know that literacy is the key to choice, to income security, to developing potential - and it is the key to an enriching and rewarding life. That is why the work of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation is so important," she said.
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation is a not-for-profit charity organisation that has delivered more than 120,000 free and culturally appropriate books to more than 250 remote Indigenous communities and service organisations around Australia. Unfortunately, such communities have no access to books - at home or in bookshops and only 36% of these communities have access to a library.
Books are the first step to alleviating illiteracy across nations. We need your help! Help us help illiterate kids and their families.
Purchase a book, change a life and bring real hope to these communities.
Your contribution will be added to the 120,000 books already supplied to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation fund.
