Dymocks Children’s Charities

To change kids’ lives - one book at a time!

To support children’s literacy and to raise funds to improve the potential of all Australian children through the provision of literacy support programs and excellent reading resources.

A study by the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) indicated that one in seven Australian students aged 15 had failed to reach a baseline level of reading proficiency considered essential for future development and knowledge acquisition.

46% of Australians aged 15 – 74 have very poor or poor “prose literacy” which means they don’t have the knowledge and skills needed to understand and use information from texts including editorials, news stories, brochures and instruction manuals.
