Indigenous Literacy Day and beyond

At Paper Parrot we support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation because we believe that reading really can change lives and that reading opens doors to future opportunities and choices.

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) is a national charity working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander remote Communities across Australia. It is  Community-led, responding to requests from remote Communities for culturally relevant books, including early learning board books, resources, and programs to support Communities to create and publish their stories in languages of their choice.

Indigenous Literacy Day (ILD) is a celebration of First Nations People’s Stories, Cultures and Languages. The day was initiated in 2011 by the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) as its key advocacy event to platform the many positive literacy achievements in remote Indigenous Communities across Australia.  

From now until the end of the year 10% of the retail price of any product purchased that is listed in our Aboriginal/ Indigenous Art & Design Collection will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. 

We also sell Blue Island Press bookmark cards and Christmas card packs which also support the ILF.
