Did you know that only a quarter of children in remote indigenous communities have a basic standard of literacy?
And that the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) is working to change this?
ILF is lifting literacy levels and instilling a life-long love of reading in kids who would otherwise not get this opportunity.
Caroline Adrian is gathering books for a book swap at her work on Wednesday 22nd November. It will allow staff to find a book they like and donate a gold coin (or more). All money raised will be donated to the ILF.
What can I do ?
If you have any books that you’d like to donate please bring them along to our club meeting on the 15th November (or earlier) and Caroline will gladly take them from you.
All books are welcome, including novels, non-fiction, kids’ and coffee table books but just make sure they’re in reasonable condition.
Know that your assistance with this request will 'make a difference'.
Join us as we travel to the village of Sna Techo, Cambodia.
Dates: 13-27th January
Health and well-being including support through the village medical centre
Activities at the school including English language and sport
Construction of a vegetable garden at the school and education about growing, preparing and cooking vegetables
Construction of a toilet block particularly to support the teenage female students to be at school full time and give them a safe place for personal hygiene. Depending on team members this will range from oversight of a contractor to hands on building.
