The Sweet Pins Foundation Limited

Read to Achieve Program


The Sweet Pins Foundation is a charitable foundation that gifts quality books-of-choice to children living in remote, disadvantaged and low socio-economic circumstances, ensuring crucial early literacy engagement and the development of reading skills needed for lifelong achievement. Our program aims to overcome the inequality of educational opportunities in communities where access to books for families is limited or non-existent and resources are often scarce. In doing so, our program contributes to helping overcome generational poverty by enhancing the chances of success in early education thereby opening up options, choices and potential in later life.

Our vision is to create an Australia where every child and family has access to books in the home.

  • The Sweet Pins Foundation provides the gift of new and quality books of choice to children who may otherwise not be able to access them, thereby helping to reduce educational inequality. The Program helps to:
  • Improve literacy and reading skills for a better education whilst simultaneously normalising reading as an everyday activity or pastime
  • Involve the family in reading and building a home library for all to share
  • Give children the pride of ownership and choice, and empower children to choose books they WANT to read rather than the books they are told to read
  • Foster self-driven learning through a connection to books and reading
  • Develop children’s creativity and imagination
  • Give children a better start in order to open up choices and opportunities in later life
  • Encourage children to engage with their school and families to engage with their community.

Ultimately, reading is the gateway to education and education is the key to prosperity. The Sweet Pins Foundation contributes to overcoming generational poverty and poor educational development by helping children learn to read in their early years.
