About us

We are two friends who have done vernacular literacy work in minority languages, each for more than thirty years. Our shared experience in literacy work includes working in the Philippines, Papua New Guinea and in an Indigenous language community in Australia. Together we have developed and taught literacy courses for those interested in working with indigenous communities at SIL Australia's training institute in Melbourne (2004 -2013) and managed a Literacy Support Project in the Solomon Islands focussed on Adult Literacy (2008-2014).


Glenys working with Solomons ladies


I'm Glenys - a primary school teacher, literacy worker, cross cultural trainer, mum and granny. I've taught literacy and training units at Grad Dip and Dip level too. I love making books - especially ones with really good texts, that help people learn to read. I've worked in Arnhem Land, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands.



I'm Robyn -  a nurse, literacy worker, Bible translator, audio Scripture and ESL specialist. I spent 21 great years in the Philippines working with the Balangao and Mayoyao people, and then as a consultant for my colleagues. I've taught literacy, language learning and Culture Studies at Grad Dip and Dip level and have consulted with literacy projects in the Solomon Islands. I've also taught Adult ESL classes. I'm currently consulting in a Mayoyao MLE project in the Philippines.


We started working together in 2004 and continue to do so in our retirement. We hope you find this site useful.
