Recognising the significance of preserving and promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture in Australia, MTC Australia and The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) have partnered together to deliver programs under MTC’s of registration that are aimed at revitalising Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander languages throughout remote communities across the country.
These programs have been designed to firstly address First Language literacy, and secondly, assist in developing connections and comparisons to English language and literacy development. The digital platform, Living First Language, created by ALNF will play an important role in the delivery of this program through capturing and sharing First Languages.
ALNF is a registered charity that is dedicated to raising language, literacy and numeracy standards in Australia, as well as developing, implementing and sustaining innovative projects for individuals, families and communities. MTC is proud to partner with ALNF to help preserve our Indigenous languages and strengthen communities across Australia.
