The Indigenous Literacy Foundation believes that Australia’s Indigenous people should enjoy the same education, employment and societal opportunities as other citizens. However, a lack of literacy skills among Indigenous communities is a common and critical barrier to participating in activities that many of us take for granted.
To help alleviate this literacy disadvantage, our Foundation works to provide access to books and literacy resources to over 200 remote Indigenous communities in Northern Territory, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and New South Wales.
To help the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, the Twitter account for @IndigenousX is attempting to gain 10,000 followers by Thursday – to donate 1c per follower. However, the message has gone viral and as of writing this, there’s about $3600 raised already by supporters on Twitter.
It doesn’t cost a thing to follow this account to make a $100 donation happen. It will help if you additionally donate to this group. Please check them out.
