Bawurra Foundation is a non-profit organisation that uses technology to preserve and share Indigenous culture and help close the Indigenous literacy gap. We are growing a digital library of stories, art, songs, languages and history shared by Indigenous Elders and community leaders. The digital library is accessed on e-readers and tablet devices that are donated to school libraries in remote at-risk communities.
Bawurra Foundation was founded in 2015 by Macquarie University students and young professionals with the vision of using technology to improve educational outcomes and celebrate the rich oral history of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The organisation has grown rapidly and is now working with numerous communities across New South Wales.
