Literacy for Life is an Aboriginal-run charity training Aboriginal people to bring literacy to their communities, using an innovative, evidence-based, campaign approach that has helped millions around the world and is now delivering results in Australia.
Find out more about the work Literacy for Life is doing, and hear from its Executive Director, Professor Jack Beetson.
Literacy can help Close the Gap
To mark Reconciliation Week, Professor Jack Beetson spoke to AIST about the Literacy for Life Foundation, an Aboriginal-run charity training Aboriginal people to teach literacy in their communities.
Improving Indigenous literacy
Listen to Literacy For Life Foundation executive director, Jack Beetson discuss why the model of improving adult literacy in Indigenous communities is so important, and what motivates him.
Literacy for Life bringing vital skills to Indigenous communities
Tackling adult illiteracy in Indigenous communities is vital if we’re ever to Close the Gap, says Professor Jack Beetson.
For more than a decade, AIST has diverted money that would be spent on speakers gifts towards charitable donations instead. In 2020 AIST is partnering with Literacy for Life.
AIST’s work on Indigenous superannuation over the past eight years has highlighted how a lack of literacy impacts health outcomes and financial wellbeing and we are proud to contribute to the work Literacy for Life to empower individuals and their communities today and into the future.
Past charities supported by AIST in lieu of speakers’ gifts are Australia for UNHRC and First Nations Foundation.
