“Reading Changes Lives, it opens doors to opportunity, imagination, and empowerment, breaking the cycle of poverty and crime, but we have to start early. With the help of Ardoch’s early language and literacy programs and a wonderful partnership with Children’s Literacy Gift, together we have been able to help many children begin their love of literacy and the journey to making a wonderful Impact on our future Australians”   ~ REN



Children’s Literacy Gift : Reading Changes Lives  

Children’s Literacy Gift is a not-for-profit organization based in Melbourne, Australia. 

We are advocates for the power of reading and developing a love of literature in children. We believe that teaching children to read is the key to breaking the intergenerational poverty cycle in Australia and the rest of the world.  

“One Billion people in the world are illiterate, if it was a health problem it would be called an epidemic. Illiteracy has a cure, it’s as simple as learning to read… “ 

Children’s Literacy Gift provides Reading Aloud Programs to children in Primary Schools and Kindergartens. 

Our objective is to build a foundation for reading giving children every opportunity to learn to read.  

Collaboration is a core value to us which is why we have formed a strong partnership with ARDOCH.  ARDOCH and Children’s Literacy Guild are aligned in our mission and intentions which therefore enables us to increase our Impact.
