Can you imagine a childhood without books?

For a person who cannot read, the likelihood of poor life outcomes such as unemployment, homelessness and mental health issues are a reality. Sadly, many parents and carers facing these socio-economic challenges are not in a position to buy books for their young children.

However, you can help to break the cycle of illiteracy by pledging a one-off or monthly donation to help us establish picture book libraries in disadvantaged communities.  Providing access to quality books and resources will ensure that children from vulnerable communities have the same opportunities as other children to learn and succeed.

With 85% of a child’s brain formed by the time they are three years old, now is the time to pledge your support to improve the life chances of these children and their families.

$30 can buy 6 books
$50 can buy 10 books
$100 can buy 20 books
$250 can buy 50 books
$500 can buy 100 books
$1000 can buy 200 books

“The children at Ingle Farm Family Zone love the new library – it is just gorgeous to watch and listen to them turning the pages and using their imagination to create a lovely story”
– Kathlene Wilson, Lutheran Community Care
