Indigenous Literacy Project

My attention has been drawn to the Indigenous Literacy Project by Abbeys Bookshop Blog.
This is a project that draws attention to the fact that Indigenous literacy rates are so low in Australia and works to raise awareness of this issue as well as raising funds to purchase books and reading resources for Indigenous children in the Northern Territory.
Our bookclub joined in this challenge last year and we each read 10 books from the lists provided on the project website - I think we will be joining in again this year to help raise some money for the project as well as helping to guide our reading for the year. The lists have some great ideas so check them out if you are interested.
