We won't stop until 5 out of 5 kids can read

It's a sad reality that only 1 out of 5 Indigenous children in very remote NT communities can read at the minimum NAPLAN standard. But you have the power to make a difference. By donating to the Wall of Hands, you'll be helping the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation continue our life-changing literacy programs in remote communities right around Australia.
