IF YOU TEACH A CHILD TO READ, YOU TEACH TEHM TO DREAM!

DPIL-twothirds1.jpg

So many of the opportunities we have in life – an education, a fulfilling job, a role in our community – depend on our ability to read.

But for many Australians, reading isn’t second nature. In fact, Australia ranks last in year 4 reading literacy levels amongst English speaking countries.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and United Way are committed to addressing this community-wide issue by focusing on a preventative program to improve early literacy for Australian kids.

HOW IT WORKS

The idea is simple: enrol as many children as possible into an Imagination Library in their community and mail EVERY CHILD, EVERY MONTH, an age appropriate BOOK especially chosen for their age and developmental stage, for the first FIVE YEARS of their life – so that when they get to school, books are already a part of their life.

This program is FREE for parents or guardians to enrol ANY child from birth to 5 years in an Imagination Library! All that’s encouraged is for the families of this program to read to their child every day – anywhere, anytime to support their child’s early literacy and language development and readiness for school.

There is simply no limit on how far we can take this program and to what ends of the country, but it is an absolute impossibility without your help. We rely on funding to provide the free books from grants, sponsorship, and private donations. If you are an interested business, organization, or individual who would like to help give the gift of reading to children, we are extremely grateful. Please CLICK HERE to make a donation.

If your community or a community that you are aware of doesn’t yet offer this proven early childhood literacy program, then we challenge you to Get Involved!

ABOUT CHARITY

United Ways throughout Australia and the world are being called upon to provide leadership and support to the community.
