Welcome to our May e-Newsletter
Hello everyone,

May has been an exciting month of fundraisers and events, including a presentation in Canberra, a trivia fundraiser in Adelaide, and the Annual Book Sale at CAE in Melbourne which we were thrilled to host! As usual, we have also been kept busy with our programs in Victoria, especially Aspire which is the focus of our End of Financial Year campaign. We will be launching our Aspire program in NSW next month, so stay tuned for more information in our June e-Newsletter!

Best Wishes,
David Perrin, CEO
ALF partners with Quota in Canberra
ALF CEO David Perrin spoke at the Quota Regional Conference in Canberra on Saturday 2nd May. 
Quota International is a ladies service organisation dedicated to helping disadvantaged women and girls.

ALF and Quota have agreed to work more closely together to alleviate poverty and disadvantage in Canberra and NSW amongst Indigenous women and girls. David was quoted saying “This will be ALFs first major partnership in NSW and Canberra. By working together, Quota and ALF can make a huge difference in this region”.
Already the partnership has agreed to distribute 2000 books and 200 electronic book readers to Canberra schools this month.

Along with our winter newsletter, we recently sent out our end of financial year campaign to our donors. This campaign focuses on our Aspire program, which has been built to advance the education and life possibilities of young Indigenous girls through personal tutoring and mentoring. The Aspire program runs throughout the year and regularly brings together groups of Indigenous girls aged between 8 and 18 years from urban and regional areas.

As we approach the end of the financial year, please consider making a donation to the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation. For as little as $50 you can help a young Indigenous student enrol in our tutorial assistance scheme. All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Click the ‘Donate Now’ button or visit our website.
