Indigenous literacy initiative
Closing the literacy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students is of utmost importance.
The gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students emerges early and has been identified as a key area for early intervention. To help address this issue, we work in partnerships with Indigenous community organisations in Victoria and Northern Territory. We distribute books and other educational resources along with literacy training, mentoring and support.
