Library for All
Library For All delivers high quality, culturally-diverse books and educational reading material to communities in need.
Learning to read should be a basic right for every child, but with limited access to reading material, millions of children around the world are not reaching basic literacy standards. Library For All addresses this by filling resource gaps in regions where history, poverty or remoteness prevents access to books. With a freely available e-book library app and printed editions on demand, Library For All aims to make knowledge available to all equally.
Funds raised: $35,000
In remote communities in Australia, books often arrive as donations and as a result, rarely contain characters that the children in these communities relate to. At TFN Live Brisbane, Library for All pitched for funding to launch a digital library written and illustrated by Indigenous people, for Indigenous children, in their local language.
