The Indigenous Literacy Project (ILP) began as a partnership between the Australian Book Industry and The Fred Hollows Foundation before becoming an independent foundation in 2011.

The ILP's core aim and objectives are:

  • To raise literacy levels and thus improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australians living in remote and isolated regions.
  • To raise awareness of literacy issues within the Australian community.
  • To raise funds to equip Indigenous Australians living in remote communities with books and the support they need to become literateks.

The major fundraiser for the Indigenous Literacy Project is Indigenous Literacy Day (q.v.), held annually.
