A Word from the CEO
Dear friends,

It’s been a very busy time for the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation. Last month, we launched our Literacy at Work program, designed to assist adults in the workplace struggling with literacy.

A Literacy and Heritage Camp was held in Ballarat where State Member for Buninyong, Geoff Howard visited to see our work.

Also this month, a number of book drives were also held in support of the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation. We are very grateful to all those who contributed. It was a pleasure to meet some of our supporters who came to our office to donate some of the books that had been so enjoyed by their families.

Best wishes,

Tony Cree, CEO
Books for Learning Program
A big thank you to the schools and companies who've recently undertaken book drives for the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation. We appreciate the care taken to choose and sort the books, with some students even including a written message for the children receiving them.

Over the next few weeks we will be distributing our books into country WA and we're sure the children will love them.

(A reminder to all those wishing to donate books to please refer to our book donation guidelines before delivery.)
