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 the development of reading skills needed for lifelong achievement. Their 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, their 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. Since 2001, Books in Homes has distributed over 2.8 million new books to children through schools and communities around Australia.
Books in Homes Australia’s vision is to create an Australia where every child and family has access to
books in the home.
Waratah Education Foundation supported the Books in Homes program in a number of schools across NSW.
