One of our campaigns key ideas for 2012 is to support the excellent work already being done in Australia around reading and writing, and in particular by those organisations which work in some of the country's remotest territories and communities. We are grateful to have the opportunity to help these organisations in their valuable projects - please visit their sites to see how you can help.
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation aims to raise literacy levels and improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australians living in remote and isolated regions. This is done by providing books and literacy resources to Indigenous communities and raising broad community awareness of Indigenous literacy issues. Visit the ILF website to see how you can contribute to their projects, and to find out how they'll be celebrating the National Year of Reading 2012. (Click here to visit)
The Smith Family is a national, independent children's charity helping disadvantaged Australians to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves. The Smith Family's work in 95 Australian communities is extended and enhanced by the 20,000 members of VIEW Clubs of Australia together with nearly 6,800 volunteers from the community and its corporate partners, who volunteer their time and energy to ensure the organisation reaches children in need.

The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) is dedicated to raising language, literacy and numeracy standards in Australia and raises funds to develop, implement and sustain innovative projects for individuals, families and communities. We think the ALNF's Share a Book program is a perfect partner activity for the National Year of Reading. Find out more here. (Click here to visit)
