Dymocks Children’s Charities

Tenant Creek Primary School – library regeneration
Dymocks Children’s Charities’ mission is to improve literacy outcomes for Australian children. 

The charity was set up in 2000 by John Forsyth, the owner of the Dymocks business to give back to the community in a meaningful way.

Dymocks Children’s Charities provide brand new books of choice to children and schools who need them the most. This helps them start their literacy journey with books they want to read and that are right for their needs. The schools Dymocks help don’t have adequate funding or resources to keep their library up to date and relevant to their students’ needs. Many children they meet also don’t have a single book in their homes so they are proud to help children start their literacy journey at a time when it can have the most impact.
