The twin joys of reading and language hold a special place in the heart of SBP. That’s why we got so excited about pledge number four – raising funds for the inspirational Indigenous Literacy Foundation – by hosting a Great Book Swap in our Pyrmont office.
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) aims to lift literacy levels and instil a lifelong love of reading in indigenous languages as well as English in communities across Australia.
350,000 new books supplied to
280 remote communities.
88 books published in indigenous languages and English.
Raise $350,000 to buy
35,000 new books for distribution.
Publish books in indigenous languages.
A big shout out to all our colleagues, clients, friends and family who joined us to grab some books, enjoy some homemade afternoon tea and help us almost double our $500 target.
