"No-one wanted to be a refugee...but now as we are here [in a refugee camp], we also really suffer, just because of the war which forced people to come here. Because they lack knowledge in their mind, that's why they continue with their war, and make us to suffer."

These children were asked how they were different from one another. Their responses teach us a lot about unity, accepting each other's gifts and differences. If everyone on the planet showed this kind of tolerance towards each other, there would be a lot more harmony and peace than there is in the world’s current state of affairs. We can learn a lot from these kids!

Indigenous kids are being left behind. Appallingly, only 1/5 Indigenous children in very remote communities in the Northern Territory reach the minimum standard for reading and writing (NAPLAN 2016). When will we decide that this is just not good enough? Help us close the Indigenous literacy gap today by joining the Wall of Hands movement at
