Right now, 4 out of 5 Indigenous kids in very remote communities can't read at the national minimum standard...
That's a disgrace.
Being able to read and write is a basic human right...for ALL Australian children.
We've just launched our 2014 Wall of Hands Appeal to implement our 'Early Language and Literacy' and 'Community Action Support' programs in the remote communities of Indulkana and Mimili, located around 400km south of Alice Springs.
Because there are 148 kids in these communities who desperately need our support to learn how to read and write.
Kids just like Kulaia (pictured), she is 9 years old and her dream is to become a nurse so she can 'help the old people' in her community.
But Amanda, I need your help.
And today is June 30, so you can make your tax deductible donation and claim it in this financial year! We'll send you a receipt immediately after you complete your donation.
Our programs will ensure that literacy levels improve throughout these communities so that future generations of children can continue to gain these vital literacy and numeracy skills. Because literacy changes lives and creates safer and stronger communities...
And that's why the Wall of Hands movement is so important.
I hope you will join me and raise your hand in the 2014 Wall of Hands Appeal to help the kids of Indulkana and Mimili.
Together, we can close the Indigenous literacy gap, one community at a time.
To view the campaign and meet the gorgeous kids from these communities.
Have a great day.
P.S. Raise your hand today and make your tax deductible donation in this financial year to reduce your tax - today is your last chance!
