The Charitable Foundation for Books in Homes Australia

The Rotary DG Family Project Books for Kids Campaign


The District 9810 Rotary Family project in 2019-20 will focus on:

  • contributing to helping overcome generational poverty,
  • enhancing the chances of success in early education,
  • opening up options, choices and potential in later life, and
  • making a difference within our local communities.

Rotary District 9810 together with Books in Homes will provide books-of-choice to children living in the local communities of District 9810 in disadvantaged and low socio-economic circumstances, ensuring crucial early literacy engagement and the development of reading skills needed for lifelong achievement.


Rotary D9810, in partnership with Books in Homes, have customised their standard program as a “special project”. Each term Books in Homes will deliver to the selected children in the selected schools:

  • Two personally labelled books-of-choice for each child to own and keep in their own personally labelled book bag. 

Furthermore, each school receives a Preview Pack of 48 books to keep, and everybody gets to participate in the Book Giving Assembly.

Budget Challenge

  • Average cost from $17.98 to $19.10 per child per term.
  • That’s $1.90 per week, or less than 40c per school day!
  • The more money raised, the more children who can get books.

The books are top quality and brand new, curated for the program by the Books in Homes Book Selection Committee, made up of authors, illustrators, educators, and parents!
