Books for Kids

  • District 9810 raised A$35,000 with the DG Family project, “Books for Kids” campaign which aimed to identify and fund primary schools in Victoria’s SE and Yarra Ranges suburbs that would benefit.
  • This investment will support 24 schools and over 1800 students.
  • Each child will get to choose 2 new personalized books, and each participating school will receive a pack of 48 books to integrate into the school library for all current and future students to access.
Books in Homes
  • Books in Homes Australia is a charitable foundation that provides books of choice to children living in remote, disadvantaged and low socio-economic circumstances, ensuring crucial early literacy engagement and development of reading skills needed for lifelong achievement.
  • The program aims to overcome the inequality of educational opportunities in communities where access to books for families is limited or nonexistent and resources are often scarce.
  • Books in Homes has distributed over 2.7 million new books to children through schools and communities around Australia, and has enjoyed a long and rewarding relationship with Rotary clubs over the past 20 years.
  • D9810’s Books for Kids project will celebrate the largest single fundraising campaign Rotary has conducted with Books in Homes.
