Therese Rein official patron of 2008 Indigenous Literacy Project
by Clayton Wehner - May 8th, 2008
This year’s Indigenous Literacy Day campaign will be officially launched by patron Therese Rein at an event in Sydney today.
The 2008 Indigenous Literacy Day, run by the Indigenous Literacy Project (ILP) in conjunction with the Fred Hollows Foundation, will take place on Wednesday 3 September. It follows on from the success of last year’s inaugural Indigenous Literacy Day, which raised almost $250,000 to assist literacy projects in remote Indigenous communities. These funds were raised by publishers and booksellers donating a percentage of their earnings on the day, as well as through additional donations.
