Reading stories in our preferred or spoken language may seem like a given, but others can find it much more difficult to find a book that’s been translated for their needs. Imagine finding the book you’ve been after only to find that it has been published in a language you’re not comfortable with.
As part of a past HenderCare Foundation Remote Communities grant, a donation was made to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. They have used part of the donation to publish a book called ‘Cat & Mouse’ in Kriol and English. The book is an amazing addition to their community publishing projects.
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation works to ensure that young indigenous Australians living in remote communities can access reading materials and help children develop foundational comprehension in literacy.
