Celebrating Stories, Cultures and Languages

Indigenous Literacy Day takes place annually on the first Wednesday in September and aims to raise awareness about the educational struggles faced by Australia's First Nations communities.

Literacy provides a fundamental step of building context, comprehension and understanding, whether it is written, visual or auditory. For kids who miss that foundational step in their literacy journey, it has a lifelong impact.

In remote Communities across Australia, there is often no infrastructure such as libraries or bookstores. Access to reading material is extremely limited and this impacts the achievements of Indigenous children.
