Aboriginal Literacy Foundation

By almost all socioeconomic indicators, Australia’s Indigenous young people are the most disadvantaged group in the county. The majority of Indigenous children in regional and remote areas struggle to read and write, and fall well below the national literacy benchmarks.

The educational outcomes of Indigenous children are closely related to their opportunities for further education and employment.

Early intervention and support in literacy and numeracy skills is vital to keep Indigenous children engaged in education.

The Aboriginal Literacy Foundation is not-for profit and provides literacy programs and opportunities for Indigenous young people through education and community based initiatives such as the Books for Learning Program, Literacy & Heritage Camps, Literacy Resource Packs and Support Services, Literacy Tutoring and Testing, Research, and Evaluation.
