Every time you purchase a Yabayaba product, a percentage of sales is donated to the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF).
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF), established in 1999, is a national charity dedicated to raising language, literacy and numeracy standards in Australia. ALNF raises funds to develop, implement and sustain six innovative programs with tangible results, working across the nation.
ALNF’s programs address a wide range of learning needs, with a particular focus on Indigenous, refugee and marginalised communities. ALNF’s programs are targeted, specialised and community driven. They give parents, educators and community members the tools they need to break the cycle of trans-generational illiteracy. Most importantly, they are proven, with 90% of participating students improving their phonemic awareness, meaning that they can start school ready to read, write and continue their educational journey.
Together with ALNF, we believe 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.
