Vivid Sydney Charity Partner The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) is the charity partner for Vivid Sydney 2021. Australia’s first literacy and numeracy charity, ALNF is dedicated to raising language and literacy standards in some of our nation's most disadvantaged communities,
Through our award-winning and community-led literacy programs, we empower individuals to be their own change-makers and break the cycle of illiteracy and disadvantage.
As part of our unwavering commitment to making literacy accessible for all, ALNF has developed the Living First Language Platform, which addresses the urgent global need to revitalise, preserve and teach Indigenous Languages through the development of interactive and dynamic digital literacy apps. This technology bridges cultural divides, encourages literacy and, most importantly, puts First Languages firmly back in community members’ hands to pass on to the next generation.
We are honoured to have received international recognition for this groundbreaking technology through awards from SXSW, MIT Solve and the UN World Summit Awards.
ALNF believes that literacy is freedom- literacy allows individuals to access education, participate meaningfully in our society and to have a voice. It is a basic human right.
