Wall of Hands

Downer has been a proud supporter of the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation’s Wall of Hands Appeal since 2013.

The ALNF works with Indigenous communities and schools around Australia with the aim that 5 out of 5 kids will learn to read – the vital first step to a satisfying and successful life.

The ALNF is the first national charity dedicated to raising language, literacy and numeracy standards in Australia. The ALNF believes all Australians have the right to literacy because being able to read and write is the key to accessing education and employment, and to participating fully in society. Its programs are tailored to the needs of individuals, groups and communities, and are incredibly effective in delivering tangible outcomes and creating a real impact.

Closing the Indigenous literacy gap is a serious, long-term issue and Downer is a proud supporter of this very worthy cause.
