Partners in the Premier's Reading Challenge
Dymocks Children's Charities
Dymocks Children's Charities (DCC) is an Australian-wide, tax-deductible charity. DCC's mission is 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 books. Their vision is to change kids' lives - one book at a time.
Ensuring all children reach an appropriate level of literacy remains one of Australia's major challenges. Dymocks Children's Charities has developed a unique literacy support program that encourages primary students to cultivate a love for books and read every day 'just because they want to'. Quite simply, it's about getting great books into kids' hands!
While our aims are relatively simple, the results can be profound, transforming a child's self-esteem and their entire relationship with learning. We know that if a child reads for pleasure every day they will improve their literacy and become lifelong learners.
In 2003 Dymocks Children's Charities became the Principal Partner for the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge. Dymocks Children's Charities has remained the most significant supporter of the Premier's Reading Challenge.
