Let's Read: Community library of local and other Indigenous books

This grant will establish a library in the Indigenous community of Pine Creek, NT, encouraging locals to self-publish their own books to increase storytelling and reading engagement.


The World Literacy Foundation is a non-profit organisation. Their mission is to eradicate illiteracy by improving literacy skills and education opportunities for young people from marginalised and low-income backgrounds, including Indigenous communities.

Their grassroots community programs, and established partnerships with Indigenous groups, aim to provide vital resources to teach literacy and promote parent and child engagement in reading.
