Proud to support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

Being able to read opens so many doors.

But in very remote Indigenous communities, books are all too scarce and literacy levels are so much lower than anywhere else in Australia.

The Commute is proud to support and celebrate the great work of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

ILF was founded by Suzy Wilson, a former teacher and education consultant who owns Riverbend Books. They are a not-for-profit charity which respects the unique place of Australia’s first people and draws on the expertise of the Australian book industry. ILF’s purpose is to make a difference to the lives of Indigenous families by not only gifting thousands of new culturally appropriate books – with a focus on early literacy and first language – but also by running programs to inspire the communities to tell and publish their own stories.

We cannot thank you enough for supporting our program. We have seen firsthand the benefits increased positive experiences of early reading including conversational reading, reading with family and looking at books independently. We know that reading opens doors and the books you provide help give disadvantaged children the opportunity to do this and develop a love of literacy from the beginning.
