Hi,

Did you know that 4 out of every 5 Indigenous kids living in very remote communities can’t read to the minimum NAPLAN standard?

This shocking statistic is why I’ve raised my hand to support The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation’s Wall of Hands Indigenous Literacy Appeal.

To have a literacy gap in 2014 is unacceptable. Literacy changes lives and being able to read and write will give these children the chance to write their own futures.

Improving literacy in Indigenous communities is not just an educational issue, it is a moral and compassionate one.

The ALNF focuses on delivering specialised programs to children living in remote Indigenous communities to give them the support and resources they need to help them learn to read and write.

But they need our support to help more kids.

This year, the ALNF need to raise $400,000 to implement their literacy programs to help the kids of Indulkana and Mimili, located in the APY lands about 400 km south of Alice Springs.

Please sponsor my wall to help the kids of Indulkana and Mimili learn to read and write so they can reach their full potential.

Thank you for your support.
